Teaching With Impact - Making With Purpose
Aug
06
2019
August 6 - 9, 2019
Making With Purpose is about understanding and using the skills, craft, and art of making to foster a mindset in students as well as a skillset. This workshop teaches participants how they can incorporate a complete set of educational objectives into makerspace activities, whether low or high-fidelity, inside-or- outside the classroom. The workshops emphasize the concurrent development of skillset and mindset, i.e. attitudes, dispositions, and motivations for undergraduate engineers. This workshop is both for faculty who currently use makerspaces and desire to add the dimension of mindset, and to those who are considering the use of makerspaces and are interested in a complete set of associated learning outcomes.

EML Through Research
Nov

2019
November 18 - 21, 2019
Driven by innate curiosity, opportunity identification, and an individual’s desire to create lasting impact, research activities are intrinsically entrepreneurial. Through undergraduate research programs and other means, institutions and faculty leaders have long recognized the educational potential of exposing undergraduate engineering students to disciplinary research. The goal of all faculty development offerings within this track is to become more intentional about the development of an entrepreneurial mindset in undergraduate engineering students that are exposed to disciplinary research. This track is under development and an associated pilot workshop is planned in November 2019.
