Enhancing Academic Courses

The Makerspace @ Williams College

The Makerspace (Sawyer 248)

The Makerspace Program Manager, David Keiser-Clark, and his student workers support faculty, staff, and student academic projects. This approach enables student workers to develop expert-knowledge in traditional and emerging technologies, build 1:1 relationships with faculty and staff, and sometimes network with faculty and students at peer institutions. Student workers strengthen their communication and project management skills, and publish blog posts to synthesize learning experiences, spotlight stakeholders, and contextualize these projects.

The Makerspace encourages interdisciplinary discussions of academic projects grounded in technology. The Makerspace facilitates innovation and creativity through experimentation, prototyping, and hands-on learning. We collaborate with other campus spaces to complete complex projects, and student workers have opportunities to learn technologies in previously inaccessible siloed spaces.
