Educators are interested in using the Design Thinking Model in their schools and the natural follow up is to develop a Maker Space, where creativity and the explosion of ideas can grow. They are popping up in schools around the world, yet once installed, few schools have a strategy for using and managing these sites. This interactive 6 module workshop will navigate the development of a school philosophy and ethos to sustain and cultivate a thriving Maker Space for your school.

This course has been designed in 6 modules to allow approved SUNY Buffalo State students enrolled in the International Graduate Program for Educators (IGPE) to take it for either one, two or 3 graduate credits.

All participants will receive a certificate of completion for 45 clock hours of professional development.

Please note that to get graduate credit from SUNY Buffalo State you must either be enrolled in their International Graduate Program for Educators or you must have applied and been approved for non-degree graduate credit.
