Instructor Makerspaces

Calling all playful instructors!  Bring your lunch and join us at the Exchange for a Friday of low-stress tinkering and exploration.  Instructional designers at the Exchange will be on hand to help you as you build all sorts of cool stuff.  This semester, we’ll be creating instructional videos and podcasts, analog and digital games, digital textbooks, maps, infographics, and data visualizations.  We’ll start each session with a very brief introduction to the topic and then open up the session to exploration.  Exchange instructional designers will be on hand to troubleshoot or learn with you.  For the R.I.P.P.L.E. sessions (Rework, Innovate, Play, Produce, Learn, Engage), bring a stale, boring, or otherwise ineffective lesson and we’ll play with ways to breathe new life into it.  If you have any questions about what’s going to happen during a given week, just shoot us an email at exchange@gsu.edu.  Give it a shot!  Good times!
