This was one of the most useful workshops I've attended. Excellent work by the organizers and facilitators! I look forward to continue collaboration with this group.
- From a workshop survey

Integrating Curriculum With Entrepreneurial Mindset (ICE) introduces faculty to the framework of entrepreneurially minded learning (EML) centered on curiosity, connections, and creating value. Participants in ICE Workshops will apply the principles learned to create and share a teaching technique for a particular topic in their discipline.

Through the exploration of each of these components, you will learn about a variety of different active learning techniques that can be applied to instill the entrepreneurial mindset in students. You'll also learn about key components for making a strong learning experience for your students including learning objectives, problem statements, and teamwork.

Game programming

Game Programming: Exploring Consequences and Creating Value

How can we make an introductory programming course more engaging? Show your a “big picture” view of their work by incorporating EML. Task students with creating an educational game for the hypothetical client, the Water Council, on the topic of water resources challenges locally and worldwide. Ultimately, this is an engineering project, not just a programming task!

Coastal Structure

Coastal Structures: Designing for Uncertainty, Designing for Failure

Not only is there uncertainty in designing for the present environmental conditions, but any structure with a design life of 10+ years will need to incorporate the uncertainty of sea level rise and coastal storm conditions. Students find examples of structure performance and forces on the structure while looking for failure and how that failure was mitigated.
