Teaching With Impact - The Problem-Solving Studio
This event is from August 12 - 15, 2019

REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 1 (KEEN Partner coupon codes expire May 1)

In this workshop, you will learn how to enact the Problem-Solving Studio: an interactive learning environment that turbocharges student learning and engagement. Educators learn how to employ pedagogical methods that rely upon collaborative teamwork and promote the value of applying theory and knowledge to real world problems – especially for complex problems that are inherently ambiguous. The primary goal is to promote fearlessness in the face of the unknown so that graduates recognize their own power to use their skills and knowledge to confidently approach and solve any problem.

How to participate in Engineering Unleashed Faculty Development:
  1. Register for your workshop
  2. Complete pre-work through a short video introduction and brief exchanges with facilitators and other participants (pre-work opens in late April)
  3. Select a candidate project and examine how entrepreneurial mindset applies
  4. Attend your chosen workshop
  5. Develop, deploy, and assess project work over a span of up to one year with one-on-one coaching and consulting
  6. Share results with the Engineering Unleashed community 
Additionally, competitive funding opportunities are available to those who successfully complete a faculty development program. 

The mission of the Problem-Solving Studio is to empower participants to: 
  • Design and lead interactive learning environments that promote deep learning and foster students’ entrepreneurial mindset
  • Create complex multifaceted adaptive problems that are critical to successful implementation
  • Teach adaptively in real-time to capitalize on your students’ diverse ways of thinking
  • Critically reflect on your own teaching
  • Value and integrate the entrepreneurial mindset within your course content

The deliverables of the program are to:

  • Design a problem-solving studio session at the workshop 
  • Carry out a problem-solving studio session at your home institution
  • Assess and reflect on the effectiveness of your problem-solving studio session
  • Create a network of support as a community of practice, leveraging the KEEN subnet
