Building EML Foundations in STEM

Are you looking for active learning techniques to effectively engage students?

Do you want to improve student outcomes and faculty satisfaction by integrating concepts of entrepreneurially minded learning (EML) into foundational STEM courses?

Workshop: Building Entrepreneurially Minded Learning Foundations in STEM

Intended Audience: Non-engineering STEM Faculty of Foundational STEM Courses

Building EML Foundations in STEM introduces faculty to the framework of entrepreneurially minded learning (EML) with a focus on developing an engineering mindset through the application of curiosity, connections, and creating value. 

You'll experience various active learning techniques with an emphasis on the engineering mindset to effectively engage students within the classroom. Examples will include in-class activities for calculus, physics, biology, and chemistry that illustrate the incorporation of EML.
