For the German conference GMW 2019 the team from Salzburg Research together with Clarissa Braun and Martin Ebner (both TU Graz) were able to successfully submit a contribution to makerspaces as a new variant of student laboratories.
The summary (translated):
This paper outlines the landscape of student labs and looks at makerspaces as a new variant of them. The article tries to classify makerspace systematically. It is noticeable that interdisciplinarity in particular is becoming increasingly important in makerspaces and that the pedagogical-didactic approach of maker education is more open than in conventional student laboratory concepts. The article also mentions examples of maker spaces as student laboratories.
