January 23: National Makerspace Survey Preliminary Findings

Dr. Kareem Edouard

Abstract: This talk explores the ExCITe Center's Learning Innovation initiative, specifically looking at the pedagogical depth and impact of practices facilitated through makerspaces and similar hands-on creative learning environments. With the relative lack of quantitative data available for assessment, detailed interviews and the development of new data through linguistic coding were conducted as the basis of analysis and evaluation. Preliminary findings are shared as a more comprehensive understanding of maker practices are developed as a potential driver for education reform.
