The purpose of this document is to describe a special session to be presented at the 2020 Frontiers in Education Conference. This special session will feature a workshop that was created as part of a larger a faculty development initiative within the College of Engineering at Pennsylvania State University. The faculty development initiative, called Entrepreneurial Mindset for Innovative Teaching (EMIT), was funded as part of the Engineering Faculty Impact Collaborative (EFIC) being led by Arizona State University and the Kern Family Foundation. The EMIT project builds on the idea that the practices and mindset associated with quality teaching mirror practices of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurial mindset. The special session will feature the introductory workshop developed as part of the overarching EMIT program. The session will be interactive and will allow participants to consider how the processes of teaching and entrepreneurship can be similar. Activities included in the session will be reflections, pair-and-share, case studies, and small- and large-group discussions.
