Design in Engineering Education
This paper details how student-led workshops can help nurture community in a makerspace and build design skills. Though both extracurricular design learning and peer-to-peer learning have been investigated in engineering education research, the combination of the two to promote a design thinking mindset and teach specific skills has not been fully developed. This paper details how this co-creation of extracurricular resources between peer teachers and faculty and staff mentors creates opportunities for students to learn prototyping and design-thinking to complement the more formal, in class engineering education. Student led workshops are presented as the start of a systemic series of extracurricular design learning experiences.
