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.
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 Milwaukee, WI from August 12 - 15, 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 EngineeringUnleashed.com to serve as a resource for the community.
The aim of the MS workshop is to help you maximize a return-on-investment in educational interventions. An activity design framework supports instructors in creating high-impact maker projects that tackle your course’s “troublesome knowledge.” You will engage in each of the 3Cs:
- Cultivate curiosity around troublesome knowledge by participating in and designing maker activities.
- Make connections between underlying principles and real-world applications through the active translation of concepts to physical artifacts.
- Create value through the development of maker activities that engage your students in deeper learning and increase students’ ability to apply these concepts in future work.
Who Should Attend: Engineering instructors who are interested in leveraging the power of hands-on, experiential learning in a maker environment but who may have struggled in the past with the ideation and design process.
Registration Opens: February 8, 2024
Registration Closes: April 5, 2024
