Additional Information

A Revolution Is Coming. It Isn t What You Think. This book tells the improbable stories of Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, a small startup in Needham, Massachusetts, with aspirations to be a beacon to engineering education everywhere, and the iFoundry incubator at the University of Illinois, an unfunded pilot program with aspirations to change engineering at a large public university that wasn t particularly interested in changing. That either one survived is story enough, but what they found out together changes the course of education transformation forever:

*How joy, trust, openness, and connec- tion are the keys to unleashing young, courageous engineers.

*How engineers educated in narrow technical terms with a fixed mindset need an education that actively engages six minds analytical, design, people, linguistic, body, and mindful using a growth mindset.

*How emotion and culture are the crucial elements of change, not content, curriculum, and pedagogy.

*How four technologies of trust are well established and widely available to promote more rapid academic change.

*How all stakeholders can join together in a movement of open innovation to accelerate collaborative disruption of the status quo.
