CT-W2: From Dewey to Hackers to Entrepreneurs

11:30 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.
Terence O'Neill, Entrepreneurship Librarian, Michigan State University

Makerspaces in academic libraries pull from a range of influences, including Design Thinking, Hackerspaces, entrepreneurially motivated TechShops, and a heavy dose of Papert’s constructionism. In their synthesis and expression of this range of influences, makerspaces contain multitudes of possibilities. Hear how academic library makerspaces have aligned themselves with various influences while creating new models, seeking to better define not only what is meant by the term makerspaces but also to provide more nuanced understanding of the shapes that makerspaces take.
