About the webinar
The concept of makerspaces is beginning to shape the language and mental images of those responsible for the character of learning in undergraduate settings. For many, makerspaces are synonymous with product design and 3D printers. But what if a makerspace could be more than that? A place for deep learning, a place to connect disciplines, a place to unleash creativity; an ideal environment in which 21st century learners become the creative, resilient, informed risk-takers that make a difference in the world in which they live and work.
Learning outcomes from this webinar will include:
- why attention to makerspacesis increasingly important;
- what we have learned about makerspaces that work and how we know;
- how to imagine makerspaces for the future; and
- how to realize makerspaces for the future.
Registration is free; RSVP to Don Kilts (email@example.com or 443-3780) and indicate that you plan to attend, or if you have questions or need accommodations.
