In the final session we'll reflect on ways to document our work and collaborate with each other. We'll brainstorm ways to support professional development activities, try out one more project that can be facilitated at home using everyday materials and return to the initial prompt of thinking about why tinkering is a valuable approach for all learners.

Workshop 15 April 2021
Week 3 takes a look at the learners' experience

In the third session we'll think together about the ways that tinkering involves a sense of co-creation. We'll hear participants’ and facilitators’ voices and discuss how we can support personal expression and engage with communities. We'll consider how the pandemic has provided challenges and opportunities for an inclusive practice.

During the second workshop we'll meet some artists, scientists and makers from around the world and see how their approach can inspire our explorations. We'll try out a hands-on activity together and reflect on different ways of describing the goals and outcomes of the tinkering experience.
