Description

This professional development experience will center around the book  "The Art of Tinkering" by Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich.  We will use this book and other resources to: 

- discuss similarities and differences between tinkering and engineering

- learn about the work of artists, tinkerers, and engineers from around the world

- explore and experience a wide range of tinkering and engineering projects that students can engage in at home

- plan for tinkering and engineering projects during remote and blended learning

We will engage in lively discussions and active tinkering activities during five two-hour Zoom sessions, with “home-fun” tasks to expand your work between sessions.  

$50 registration fee includes a copy of “The Art of Tinkering” by Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich and a small set of materials for your “home-fun” tinkering tasks.  We will be mailing these to your address in advance of the first session; please be timely in responding to emails for address verification. 

No refunds for cancellations will be issued after 10/13/2020

Expectations:  Participants are expected to be present on a computer for our 5 synchronous sessions (2 hours each) and to participate by posting in our Canvas course after each session.  

The course meets from 4-6 PM on the following Tuesdays in February and March:

February 2, 9, 16, 23, and March 2
