Demystifying the Hackerspace: Using UMaine’s Hackerspace for classroom-based research

October 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Are you looking for creative and relevant ways to have your students engage in research in your courses?  Makerspaces/Hackerspaces provide students with a suite of 21st century tools to innovate, solve problems, collaborate and be creative in any discipline. Learn how to empower your students to use tools such as inexpensive micro processors connected to  a wide array of sensors, 3D printers and more.

In this orientation, instructional designers will walk you through the tools and technologies available to you and your students at the Hackerspace. They will offer strategies for incorporating these tools into your own teaching, and how they can help you to facilitate this process. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary – simply join Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning to learn more about these exciting opportunities.
