Waag Society’s Creative Learning Lab annually organizes a professional development course for teachers in maker education. Teachers in Dutch education get acquainted with the newest maker technologies—like digital fabrication, 3D printing, electronics, and programming. But most of all, they get to experience being a learner again. They get to be inspired, and to make what they always wanted to make.
In the summer of 2018, a next course is planned to train teachers in maker education: the Teacher Maker Camp. The central elements in this maker education course are: teachers, creativity, do-it-yourself, and enthusiasm for making, creating, and inquisitiveness. To inspire teachers while helping them develop 21st century skills, and challenging them to better prepare their students for the modern world.
