How Do I

Find & Create Cards?

What is a card?

An Engineering Unleashed "card" is an online template for faculty and staff to share modules, classes, projects, and more. 

  • Need ideas for class? Download lesson plans, presentations, case studies, student artifacts, and other resources for an individual unit, class, semester-long project, or entire curriculum.
  • Share your course content. Provide your lesson plans and instructor tips, upload a variety of resources, and describe the purpose and outcomes you've experienced. There is no limit to the cards you can create.

Cards make it easy to implement and adapt the entrepreneurial mindset (EM) for anything from a lesson that fits into an existing course to an institution-wide approach.

The first part of a card contains: 

  • Evocative image 
  • Descriptive title 
  • Description of project, class, course, etc. 
  • Alignment with the entrepreneurial mindset and relevant skillsets 
  • Applicable engineering disciplines
