Making Academic Change Happen

Do you want to expand the impact of your work and effect a broader change in your department or institution?

Are you seeing real value in what you have developed but need to convince others of that value to sustain the transformation?

Workshop: Making Academic Change Happen (MACH)

Does this sound familiar? Your course, project, or initiative based on the entrepreneurial mindset (EM) is positively transforming the ways in which your students or colleagues think and work. You're seeing real value! Now you want to expand the impact of your work and effect a broader change in your department or institution. How do you convince others of that value to sustain the transformation?

The Making Academic Change Happen workshop can help you expand the impact of your EM-based project. You'll learn how to incorporate a complete set of educational objectives into makerspace activities, whether low or high-fidelity, inside or outside the classroom, and in a remote setup. This customized, research-based, practice-oriented experience will teach you to draw skills from fields outside of your disciplinary expertise.
