Makerspaces are physical locations where people gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network, and build. The "7 Things You Should Read About..." series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides a concise set of resources on emerging learning technologies meant to provide a quick understanding on the topic. Topics are sourced from ELI’s “7 Things You Should Know About...” series, which also contains an issue on makerspaces. You might find other ELI resources useful in addressing teaching, learning, and technology issues at your institution. To learn more, please visit the ELI publications page.
