Certificate in Maker Education

Program Description

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.
