Teaching Outside the Box:  An exploration of Make Culture in support of teaching and learning

Catherine StephensCatherine Stephens from the School of Education shared how Makerspaces pose a new framework for teaching and learning, and imply the building of bridges across libraries, industry, and area schools. In this interactive session, we explored nearby and resource rich learning spaces both in and out of schools, and consider support for community partnerships. Participants also took part in a Maker activity, and came away with lessons learned about what Make Culture teaches us about teaching and learning, community building, and the underlying bridge across disciplines including education, the arts, sciences, and service learning.
