Template & Instructions for the 2020 ASEE Best Card Competition

Trying to share something from ASEE or are entering a card into the ASEE Best Card Competition? Use this card as a guide.

Start by writing for other faculty. Why should they care? What is the big idea or concept that you are sharing? 

Next, share how this card connects to entrepreneurial mindset. You can check boxes related to the 3C's of entrepreneurial mindset (curiosity, connections, and creating value) within your card, but adding this to the description allows you to elaborate on how you are instilling this mindset. 

After that, provide details of your paper or poster. Do you have a session description? Is there other supplemental context that others should know? (look at the example cards linked below for how others have done this)

That leads to the final tip: tease out resources that are linked below by referencing them within the description. This gives other faculty an incentive to scroll down and download the resources you are sharing. 

The evaluation rubric is linked below.

Here are the details for the 2020 ASEE Best Card Competition:
