Maker literacies in K-12 and Higher Education - hybrid talk this week

The UNB Faculty of Education Work In Progress Series and the Harriet Irving Library Research Commons present:

Maker literacies in K-12 and Higher Education

March 30th noon to 1pm, online and in the Data Visualization Lab of the Harriet Irving Library Research Commons

The integration of making and makerspace resources into curricula can strengthen the academic experience. Maker-centred learning supports this by exposing students to experiential, inquiry-driven learning while exploring a diverse assemblage of materials.  When permitted to construct ideas in a maker learning environment students tend to refine skills that may receive less emphasis in more traditional coursework like collaboration, design thinking, and iterative problem-solving.

In this session, Marc Bragdon (Head of the Research Commons, UNB Libraries) will discuss the integration of maker literacies in non-STEM disciplines in higher education, and Jacob Lingley (Director of Instructional Design with Brilliant Labs) will speak on the influence that a culture for making can have on resources developed by teacher candidates.

This long running series of research and professional shop talks touches down in the Harriet Irving Library this March 30th at noon and welcomes graduate students from across disciplines to learn more about goings on in the world of Education research.
