Stimulate institutional change through your own faculty development program!

When: January 3 - 6, 2024
Where: Tempe, AZ

Create institutional change through your own EM faculty development program! To make it habitual in our students, we need to build a culture and community of entrepreneurial mindset at our institutions.

Integrating Curriculum With Entrepreneurial Mindset 2.0 (ICE 2.0): Taking Entrepreneurially Minded Learning to the Next Level focuses on supporting faculty developing an EM-focused faculty development program at your institution. With the guidance of peer facilitators and coaches, this deep dive will lead to systematically incorporating the entrepreneurial mindset across thematically-related courses or programs.

Who Should Attend: Experienced faculty teams from the same institution wanting to develop an EM faculty development program on their own campus. Participants must have completed at least one past EUFD National Workshop.

Registration Closes: September 1, 2023

3 Key Takeaways:

Everything you learn from the facilitation and coaching team and other participants can be immediately applied to your context and topics of interest.

  • Investigate best practices in faculty development for inspiring, mentoring and coaching you in the integration of EML in your courses.

  • Acquire the tools to design your own EML teaching and learning faculty development opportunity at your institution.

  • Draft a preliminary plan for systematically incorporating EM Faculty Development.

Workshop Phases

Each EUFD National workshop consists of three distinct phases, the Quickstart, Meetup, and Press Onward, over the course of a year.

  • 1. QuickStart

    The QuickStart course begins your adventure. You can start your journey immediately after registering. In this self-paced online course, you will begin learning the central ideas of the workshop and how they apply the entrepreneurial mindset (EM). The facilitation team has customized your introduction to the workshops topics and will ask you to identify a candidate project.

  • 2. Meetup

    Within the Meetup course and event, you will interact (and likely even have some fun) with the facilitation team and other participants. The Meetup for this particular workshop will be in-person! Up to thirty participants will meet in Tempe, AZ from January 3 - 6, 2024. Learning from each other is always one of the most valuable and memorable parts of any workshop sequence. Individual participants will arrive — and a community will emerge.

  • 3. Press Onward

    Pressing Onward can be transformative. Following the Meetup event you will have a series of online meetings over the course of the year with members of the coaching team, individually or with other participants. The ample time between meetings affords an opportunity to develop your ideas and experiment. Get real results as you apply what you learned and share discoveries along the way. When complete, you'll publish a card on to serve as a resource for the community.

Facilitator & Coach

Maria-Isabel Carnasciali

Maria-Isabel is the Assistant Provost for Assessment & Faculty Development at the University of New Haven, CT. She is Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering where she teaches courses in thermo/fluids and design. She obtained her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech specializing in the area of thermal fluid systems. She received her Bachelor of Science in Engineering from MIT. Her educational research focuses on the nontraditional engineering student – understanding their motivations, identity development, and impact of prior engineering-related experiences. Her work dwells into learning in informal settings such as makerspaces, summer camps, military experiences, and extra-curricular activities. Other research interests involve validation of CFD models for aerospace and industrial applications, as well as optimizing efficiency of thermal-fluid systems. A huge proponent of active and collaborate learning, she has been leading faculty development workshops for over 15 years. In her free time, she is likely out sailing or boating!
