This panel discussion will present new assessment models, methods and techniques being developed and put into practice by the Kern Entrepreneurship Education Network (KEEN). KEEN is a network of twenty private universities committed to developing a new class of entrepreneurial engineers that can impact industry faster and help preserve the American way. KEEN strives to instill an entrepreneurial mindset to create intrepreneurial engineers around seven outcomes: 1) Effectively collaborating in a team setting, 2) Applying critical and creative thinking to ambiguous problems, 3) Constructing and effectively communicating a customer-appropriate value proposition, 4) Persisting and learning from failure, 5) Effectively managing projects through appropriate commercialization or final delivery process, 6) Demonstrating voluntary social responsibility and 7) Relating personal liberties and free enterprise to entrepreneurship. Examples of the KEEN assessment model will be presented along with a series of complementary methods being developed by KEEN schools.
