This highly interactive session will introduce participants to maker competencies, a way of thinking about learning that is emerging from the University of Texas at Arlington, Boise State, and elsewhere. Leslie Madsen, an associate professor of history and director of instructional design and educational assessment (the IDEA Shop) at Boise State will share her experience implementing maker competencies into a recent course. She will then lead participants through activities they can apply to their own courses or informal learning environments. Participants can expect to leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of how they can implement maker competencies alongside more traditional learning outcomes.

Participants will: - Create a list of maker competencies relevant to their educational contexts. - Identify maker competencies that complement their traditional learning outcomes. - Begin to design an activity or assignment that integrates maker competencies with course content.
