New Course in Maker Education

Coming this Fall to Arcadia University School of Education

ED678: Maker Education and Project Based Learning

This Fall, educators and makers will have the opportunity to take part in a unique and innovative course on Maker Education and Project-Based Learning.

Maker education uses studio design processes and inquiry practices to explore, design, make, share and re-mix art and technological creations using available technologies such as computers, electronics and laser cutters, and 3D printers.

Classes will consist of a combination of seminar and maker lab. Students will
explore a variety of techniques including basic circuitry, sewing, architecture, and design
while seeking a balance between free exploration and discovery within parameters.

The course instructor is Allison Frick, Director of outreach and education at the Hacktory, a Makerspace in Philadelphia and Librarian at Glenside Library.
