Teaching and Assessing Entrepreneurial Thinking

Entrepreneurial thinking may be implemented in many ways, depending on the discipline focus of a course or program, with implications for student learning and course design. As instructors, how do we select appropriate learning objectives and create meaningful assessments to support the development of entrepreneurial thinking in our students? What does it mean to mean to have an entrepreneurial mindset and how do we teach entrepreneurial thinking? What would interest and benefit our students, whether they are interested in social innovation, managing their professional or artistic practice, or creating a startup?  Join us as we explore ideas for integrating entrepreneurial thinking into your course design, from activities in the classroom to student assessment.

Connecting Neurodiversity to Course Design

Neurodiversity is a term to explain the unique way people's brains work in their own ways. No two people experience and interact with the world around them. Much like the world around us, no two students experience a course in the same way. In this session we will explore neurodiversity and course design strategies that best support the student learning experience including clear and measurable course learning outcomes, shared expectations, scaffolding, leveraging Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and more. Join us as we investigate supporting meaningful student learning experiences for all students through the lens of neurodiversity and course design.

Facilitator: Patrick Kelly | Guest Speakers: Greta Heathcote & Roxanne Ross
