BACKGROUND AND CONTEXT
An innovative approach to develop an entrepreneurial mindset in all undergraduate engineering and computer science students is being developed and implemented. The approach consists of the development of short e-learning modules on 18 entrepreneurial topics and the integration of these modules into regular courses in programs. A flipped classroom model is used along with contextual activities related to course content, in which students apply what they learned through the modules. The methodology addresses the credit constraints in engineering and computer science programs, the lack of instructor expertise in entrepreneurial topics, and constraints in classroom instruction time. Through a mini-grant program, six modules were deployed by 29 faculty at 24 institutions nationwide from spring 2016 to spring 2017, and 30 faculty, some from previous institutions, and others from an additional 18 institutions, deployed modules in 2017-18. Preliminary assessment of the effectiveness of the approach in developing an entrepreneurial mindset in students is presented.
