Are you an administrator wondering how to introduce making to your faculty? A teacher who would like to engage in maker-centered learning without knowing where to start? Do you want to explore who you are as a maker? Does looking at a piece of Lego make you uncomfortable? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this course is for you! Taking the stance that you can only teach or deeply know what you have experienced yourself, this course will give participants a chance to slow down and explore who they are as a maker, and then collaborate on a design challenge to identify the roadblocks, challenges, and joys of making with adult learners. The course will end with the sharing of various failed, attempted, and successful making practices in an educational context. This session is open to anyone wishing to explore making with staff, teachers, colleagues, and self, and is suitable for all levels. Capacity: 10
