Syllabus & Course Information

Welcome to this Makerspace Course!

Syllabus: All assignments are outlined the course syllabus.

I am so excited to be on this makerspace journey with you all! The content of this course will be delivered using multimedia elements. There will be some videos in which you can see me, some in which you can see my slides and hear me. I will offer lots of supporting materials too! Let's get started by watching my short introduction video below.

Discussion Boards: Throughout the course there will be assignments that need submission through the discussion board. If you'd like to ask additional questions or have questions about the course, you can include them in the general course discussion board at the bottom of this page.

Documents within the Course: Throughout this course there are documents for you to print out and one for you to edit online. If you have difficulty accessing those documents, here is a link with all of the documents you will need. They are all PDF's to be printed, with the exception of one that is a Google Spreadsheet. Please make a copy of that spreadsheet, then it is yours to edit and share online, as you please.

Communication: Although this course is asynchronous and self-paced, I want you to feel supported the whole way through. Feel free to follow me and Share your questions and celebrate your accomplishments with me on Twitter! Be sure to indicate in your message that you are enrolled in this course.

Course Microcredential: Now that you are officially enrolled in this course, you have the opportunity to earn an official Worlds of Making 'Creating Spaces for Students to Make' microcredential. This microcredential will be issued to you in the form of a digital badge. Your digital badge will give you the opportunity to celebrate all that you have learned with the world! In order to earn your digital badge, you will either have to plan and create a makerspace, as you cycle through this course, OR you will have to complete a 'Makerspace Action Plan' (included as a free resource in this course).
