Twitter Chat – Six Minds of the Whole New Engineer – Wed, 16 April, 8pm Eastern #BigBeacon

bb_twitterchatJoin me, Dave Goldberg, as I host a twitter chat on Wednesday evening, 16 April 2014, at 8pm Eastern (hashtag #BigBeacon) with the theme, The Six Minds of the Whole New Engineer.  The Big Beacon manifesto (here in English, here in French) calls for A Whole New Engineer, A Whole New Engineering Education, and Educational Rewire (a new process of educational and organizational change).

The forthcoming book, A Whole New Engineer: A Surprising Emotional Charge elaborates on these three elements of the manifesto.  Chapter 4, The Whole New Engineer – Engaging Hearts, Minds & Hands, considers the 6 Minds of the Whole New Engineer as follows:

  1. Analytical mind 
  2. Design mind
  3. People mind
  4. Body mind
  5. Linguistic mind
  6. Mindful mind

The twitter chat ask participants to reflect on the six minds, consider which are prepared adequately in a traditional engineering education, and which require additional preparation.  What is analytical mind, design mind, people mind, body mind, linguistic mind, and mindful mind?  In what ways does a traditional engineering education prepare a graduate in each mind?  Which minds are most important in day to day work as an engineer?

Join us for the weekly #BigBeacon Twitter chat at 8:00 pm EST on April 16, 2014 to answer these questions & more.
