Join New Faculty Learning Community

The Albertsons Library MakerLab and the IDEA Shop invite instructors to join an exciting new faculty learning community where we’ll explore maker competencies and experiential learning.

Making — an iterative process of creation that embraces both collaboration and individual expression — helps students build a 21st century skill set that transcends technology, developing their creativity, problem-solving savvy and empathy alongside digital fluency.

Faculty learning community participants will focus on interdisciplinary problem-solving as well as innovative teaching techniques in support of such maker competencies as recognizing unmet needs, finding or creating the right tool to address a problem, evaluating costs and benefits of different solutions and forming effective teams.

This learning community is for faculty at all levels, and no previous experience in makerspaces or with emerging technologies is required.

Read the full call for applications for the Maker Competencies + Experiential Learning FLC on the Albertsons Library website. Apply by Wednesday, Sept. 5 for priority consideration.
