Maker Conferences

Union faculty visited maker related conferences and talks around the globe to learn about critical making and hands on education and how to integrate these types of activities into their curriculum.

Maker Events

Union hosted a variety of maker related events to bring faculty and experts together to encourage exploration, discourse and to share experiences related to maker pedagogy. The events included workshops, lectures, and a Maker Faire.

Maker Projects

Faculty members and students from the arts and humanities have collaborated with faculty from across disciplines and with the Union College Maker Web to create maker-related projects for their courses.

The Our Shared Humanities Initiative has allowed Union College the opportunity to create and promote a range of co-curricular activities for faculty and students centered on critical making and hands on learning pedagogy. The maker activities mainly fall into the categories of events, conferences and projects.
