MakerLab & Makerspace Opportunities
Learning Technologies recently has created a MakerLab located in the Richel Computer Lab in Cremer Hall. The lab is open to everyone including students, faculty and staff! We have a variety of equipment available for you to experiment with. Some equipment includes a Makey Makey, RaspberryPi, SLA 3D Printer and PLA 3D Printer. Our Instructional Designers can help you with your 3D printing designs and can print anything for class or personal use. Take a look at some of our 3D printing resources:
- 3D Printing Policy
- 7 Things You Should Know About 3D Printing
- Building Dragster Wheels
- Learning Technologies Thingiverse
Experience our MakerLab in Virtual Reality!
Learning Technologies is pleased to offer a series of Mini-Makerspace workshops! This is an opportunity for our team to come to your school or campus and provide you with Makerspace training. This will include hands-on active learning opportunities, overview of makerspace methodologies, step-by-step guide for organizing and sustaining a Makerspace at your institution or in your community and a variety of tinkering activities.Our team of Instructional Designers have been actively involved with the Makerspace movement and have shared their expertise at many local, state and regional conferences. Designers have also taught all-day workshops for the Jones Institute for Educational Effectiveness.
Our workshops will get your faculty and staff excited about solving problems and will channel their inner-Sherlock so that they can create inventors in the classroom. All of our sessions can be at your institution or ours - you choose! At the completion of the workshop, all participants will earn an Emporia State University microcredential certification through Credly. This certification can be shared via social media and used as a professional development tool. For more information on our Makerspace workshops, contact Dr. Anna Catterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter @esulearningtech.
