CCC Maker – Ecosystems Mapping with Kumu (Webinar, February 22, 2017)

In this webinar we will go step by step through the template upload process, demonstrate how to open and enter information in the table, then filter and decorate the map so that you can start to personalize your ecosystem map. We know that Kumu is a powerful tool and that we are just beginning to tap into the potential of this software. We look forward to working with you as we all develop our skills with Kumu over the next few months.

Self Study Guide for Colleges Planning Makerspaces

This brief Self Study Guide was developed to help CCC Maker colleges use online data resources to help inform their makerspace Implementation Plan development. The intent is to offer tools and tips to help college teams gain insight into their colleges, students and programs. It can also suggest ways to use data to think about the requirements of your makerspace, curriculum and internship innovation. When collaborating with other colleges, it can create a shared basis for discussion within our community of practice.

This is not intended as an in depth data review, but as a tool to thinking about data as a useful resource in college makerspace planning.

College teams may also want to strike up a conversation with your college research department to let them know you are looking at data in this reflective and creative way. They will have insights into issues such as equity and student success that could also inform your thinking.

CCC Maker will soon follow up on this guide with an online webinar discussion that will be listed on the events calendar. You may contact Deborah Bird, Pasadena City College, CCC Maker Technical Assistance Provider to the participating colleges at deborah(at)cccmaker.com.

Cal-PASS Plus is one of the resources for colleges seeking data for self-study.

In this CCC Maker webinar presented by Amy Schultz, NAACE, colleges learned how to map their  External Ecosystems.

As you plan your makerspace or innovation lab, there are countless resources located within your own community and region. Identifying and mapping external partners can guide your efforts based on assets and resources already available within your community. Ecosystem mapping is also a valuable tool for planning workforce development activities, including work-based learning opportunities for students. Learn how to map your external ecosystem to enhance your innovation education efforts.
