Efforts to promote this mindset in students majoring in Development Economics is done by implementing learning innovations in entrepreneurship courses using the experience-based learning model adapted from David Kolbs (1981). This descriptive qualitative research was conducted to examine the innovation of learning using an experience-based learning model. This learning was expected to promote entrepreneurship values in the students based on local wisdom. The data were collected through in-depth interviews with and participant observation of Development Economics students who took the entrepreneurship course, and through the study of documents.
