Abstract

The aim of this course is to augment student’s mindsets, attitudes and personalities in order to be creative and innovative in entrepreneurship. Students were trained to plan, start and manage a new business. In this case, Self-Directed Learning (SDL) method was applied in the entrepreneurship course. This method was adjusted to Work from Home (WfH) and Study from Home (SfH) due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The SDL method was applied to foster the student’s independence in learning and doing business. Therefore, the study of the application of SDL method in the entrepreneurship course was to analyze student’s competence and motivation after doing SDL. Student collected the data individually from business people around them and also from YouTube. Then, student created a Simple Business Plan (SBP) and run the business personally. In controlling the student’s business, peer review and class discussion were done in some meetings. Finally, the students returned to the class and presented their sales results and findings. In the finding of this research, student showed better competence and higher motivation in entrepreneurship.
