New Workshop – Teaching in a Makerspace

DePaul University Library Maker-in-Residence Eric Landahl (Physics) will offer a new workshop for faculty this month through the Teaching Commons: “The Makerspace Movement at DePaul: Learning in a Creative Community.” highlighting ways to incorporate “maker” technology in teaching and learning. Offered at the Loop Campus in the Idea Realization Lab and at the Lincoln Park Campus in the Richardson Library Maker Hub, Landahl will introduce faculty to the history and philosophy of the maker movement, resources available for their use, and use by their students, at DePaul, and how to design, assign, and assess student work in a maker space. Visit the Teaching Commons web site to register for this workshop on January 26th (Loop) or February 16th (Lincoln Park).
