The MakerSpace MOOC the perfect storm at Chelsea Jam
The MakerSpace MOOC project would partner/closely align with existing MakerSpaces, the arts sector & arts education to explore how a MOOC style learning approach could support virtual & physical learning through the sharing of the MakerSpace/arts studio experience, skills, approach and ethos with a wider audience.
Ongoing conversation & presentation part of un-conference
About: Ideally the pilot would focus on specific cities where MakerSpaces exist e.g London, Manchester & Newcastle Upon Tyne as these spaces are increasingly becoming important physical making hubs for graduates, entrepreneurial activities and startups. So the 'MakerSpace4Arts' MOOC could explore the breath of maker learning from the type of maker skills and practices these spaces support in terms of individual PPD right up encouraging & supporting new individuals/group to start-up MakerSpace of their own in other cities maybe where these spaces are currently missing (this being a big issues at present as demand grows) e.g a MOOC on 'How to make a MakerSpace'.
What we would like to gain: We are currently looking to build a support community for this project with potential MOOC partners from across the sector including MakerSpaces, industry, arts professionals & education.
