Certificate in Maker Education
The Certificate in Maker Education program engages students in a 12 credit program designed to develop critical knowledge of making, the maker movement, and Maker Education. We will examine the ideas and practices associated with educational reforms that emphasize making as an ethos of interest driven do-it-yourself (DIY) learning and culture. Students will investigate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions associated with 21st century skill development in makerspaces as formal and informal learning environments, and the development of “maker culture” in local, national, and international communities.
A 2.5 GPA in the last 60 semester or 90 quarter units completed in the undergraduate degree is required for admission. This is a graduate-level certificate program and students must maintain a grade point average of 2.5 or higher to remain in good standing in the program.
