The Innovation Studio is your gateway to revolutionizing education through hands-on experiences and cutting-edge technology. Here's how you can harness the power of our Innovation Studio to enrich your teaching:
Experiential Learning: Transform abstract concepts into tangible experiences. Engage your students with immersive projects that bring theories to life, fostering deeper understanding and retention.
Innovative Assignments: Inspire creativity by assigning projects that encourage students to design, prototype, and present their ideas. Watch them develop problem-solving skills while creating real-world solutions.
Cross-Disciplinary Collaboration: Break down traditional silos by collaborating with colleagues from various fields. Our Makerspace provides a common ground for interdisciplinary projects, sparking fresh perspectives and groundbreaking ideas.
Tech-Infused Teaching: Integrate technology seamlessly into your curriculum. From 3D printing to virtual reality, our Makerspace offers tools that allow you to explore new teaching methods and engage tech-savvy students.
Real-World Applications: Equip students with skills applicable in the modern job market. Through Innovation Studio projects, they'll gain practical experience and build a portfolio that sets them apart in their future careers.
Showcase Opportunities: Spotlight your students' creations in exhibitions or presentations. Highlight their accomplishments and inspire others to explore the limitless possibilities of hands-on learning.
The possibilities of how one can incorporate the tools, technology, and equipment into their courses is endless. One resource to spark ideas is the Lawrence University Interdisciplinary Makerspace for Engaged Learning's blog post on Makerspace Assignments by Subject. There are many opportunities to increase student engagement there.
