A learner-centric approach is taking root in higher education, inspiring many university leaders to rethink what learning spaces should look like.  Traditional classrooms are giving way to open learning designs that encourage new teacher-student dynamics and more active learning. Meanwhile, the rise of maker spaces across college campuses is giving faculty plenty of food for thought. What will universities look like when the makers take over? Does making have a place in every course of study? In this session, attendees will dive into key projects that exemplify these converging developments and begin envisioning their implications for policy, leadership, and practice in higher education.
