Rethinking research assignments — supporting information literacy in the classroom

Making in any subject: Integrating maker literacies into your curriculum

HSL Makerspace (5-101 Health Sciences Education Center) 526 Delaware St SE, Minneapolis, MN, United States

Every course in every subject has the potential to include making. But how do you incorporate making into your curriculum in a way that enhances your teaching and your students’ learning? In this workshop, we will discuss how courses across the University are utilizing making in their projects and coursework and how the Libraries can support making in your course. We will also discuss the maker literacies, a useful framework of cross-disciplinary competencies that can help students gain transferable skills and measure their own learning. In the last portion of the workshop, we invite you to look at your own syllabi and map potential making projects that foster problem-solving and creativity, align with Student Learning Objectives, and help you reach your course goals.


Copyright and Course materials

UMN policies affirm that instructors have both the right and the responsibility to make their own decisions about their course materials. Copyright is one issue that often comes up, especially around what materials can be shared with students on course websites or as additional readings (or viewings, etc.) This session will give a brief overview of these issues, focusing on some options for course materials that don’t raise any copyright issues, and also delving into some options that require a little critical thinking.
