Maker culture, design learning and technology

Maker Culture, Design Learning and Technology (Maker @ STEAM) is a research community whose members’ research takes the role of materials seriously.

We study materials and artefacts as per se, and also in the context of making and learning. We understand learners as makers and makers as learners who are involved in creating new artefacts to ‘make a contribution’. These artefacts can be designed and invented products, conceptual tools, changes in organizational culture or actions towards sustainable future.
