Human Research Ethics Approval Number: H19REA021
Thank you for using the Library Makerspace to support your learning. This survey is designed for students who have received a maker kit as part of the Maker Kit program, or those who have undertaken the electronics on-campus workshops. The aim of the Maker Kits project is to encourage the growth of maker culture and maker skills across the university. The purpose of this survey is to explore the impact of the Maker Kits project.
The research team requests your assistance because your feedback on your learning experiences will help us in three ways:
- improve existing makerspace offerings;
- allow us to understand the effectiveness of the program,
- generate ideas for future maker kits and workshops.
