Zappe, Sarah E.; Yoder, John-David; Hylton, J. Blake – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Curiosity is often included as one of several attributes comprising the entrepreneurial mindset. While research on curiosity has been conducted in the field of psychology for many decades, applied research on the construct in the entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education settings has been lacking. The purpose of this paper is to provide…

Bekki, Jennifer M.; Huerta, Mark; London, Jeremi S.; Melton, Doug; Vigeant, Margot; Williams, Julia M. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Entrepreneurship is always challenging the status quo; it's an engine of human progress. We view Entrepreneurial Mindset (EM) as a pathway to improve upon the status quo and improve individuals, organizations, and communities and promote health, education, and prosperity. In this brief paper, we lay out the case for why EM is beneficial for…

Korte, Russell; Smith, Karl A.; Li, Cheryl Qing – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
Entrepreneurship education has become an important feature in many programs across higher education--especially in engineering education. A common goal of entrepreneurship education is developing an entrepreneurial mindset in students. Furthermore, a key competency of an entrepreneurial mindset is the ability to empathize with others. Empathy is a…

Demetry, Chrysanthe; Vaz, Richard F. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Education abroad programs are becoming more common as a mechanism for developing the global competencies of engineering graduates. An increasing body of research shows that intercultural learning does not occur "de facto" in such programs. This study used quantitative and qualitative methods to explore changes in students' intercultural…

Hagge, Mathew; Amin-Naseri, Mostafa; Jackman, John; Guo, Enruo; Gilbert, Stephen B.; Starns, Gloria; Faidley, Leann – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
Students learn when they connect new information to existing understanding or when they modify existing understanding to accept new information. Most current teaching methods focus on trying to get students to solve problems in a manner identical to that of an expert. This study investigates the effectiveness of assessing student understanding…

Lammi, Matthew D.; Denson, Cameron D. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2017
In this paper we examine a case study of a pedagogical strategy that focuses on the teaching of modeling as a habit of mind and practice for novice designers engaged in engineering design challenges. In an engineering design course, pre-service teachers created modeling artifacts in the form of conceptual models, graphical models, mathematical…
