We reviewed two key repositories of social entrepreneurship pedagogical resources: Ashoka.org and CasePlace.org. Each provides a set of useful resources, comprising videos, syllabi, cases, readings and other resources that make it easy for instructors to design social entrepreneurship courses, modules, or programs. We caution against what we see as overenthusiasm for the topic, however. since social entrepreneurship involves tinkering with social structures, sometimes with disastrous unintended effects. We advise instructors to teach their students to think critically about social entrepreneurship initiatives, since they include the potential for harm as well as good.
