Maker's Dozen

Spring 2020

Taught By: William McHale

Section: A

CRN: 7009

Credits: 3

In this course we will address the notion that making is the embodiment of learning. This studio is designed to capitalize on 21st century making and those methods based workshops and orientations offered via the Parsons Making Center by incentivizing the acquisition of 'making' literacies as part driver of discipline exploration and part complement to existing discipline or thematic focus. Over fifteen weeks, students will track through a suite of workshops that are made available through the Making Center Resources. This studio can facilitate either wide methods exploration or a deep dive into an expansive method or skill. Through iterative processes students will work towards self-directed outcomes in part derived from skill-sharing activities, in-class making dialogues and constructive critiques. Students will work towards a showcase of recursive prototyping where material transformation and experimental application is found at the forefront of knowledge.
