Save the date: Workshop Entrepreneurial Thinking in Engineering Education & Active and Collaborative Learning
Donald Carpenter and Andrew Gerhart will visit TU Delft, Eindhoven and Twente on respectively 1, 2, and 3 June. In Delft they will demonstrate how to incorporate “entrepreneurially-minded learning” in the classroom. In Eindhoven and Twente they will focus on Active and Collaborative Learning. Education staff is invited to join this interactive workshop.
In Delft participants will get to work in small group settings and learn about a technique that combines collaborative open-ended problem-based learning with attributes of the entrepreneurial mindset.
In Eindhoven and Twente participants will practice with a pedagogical classification system for Active and Collaborative Learning (ACL) which includes Project/Problem Based Learning. The system identifies 3 levels of proven classroom techniques.
