Session Title

Supporting 3D Assignments Across the Liberal Arts

Description

Do you want to promote 3D technologies or increase the use of your institution's 3D printer? Many libraries are adding Makerspaces and technology hubs, but may not have specifically planned for how these tools will be used to promote learning. As 3D modeling and printing technologies have become more accessible and reliable, the logistics and pedagogy of use are sometimes lost in the excitement of this new (and fascinating!) technology. In this session, attendees will learn how Cornell College's Center for Teaching and Learning has supported 3D learning through faculty workshops, student worker training, and the creation of a 3D Printing Interest Group. These measures have built interest in scanning, photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and 3D printing across campus and have resulted in course assignments in art history, geology, studio art, theater, kinesiology and physics, as well as student research projects in archeology and art history. Attendees will leave with strategies and a framework for developing meaningful buy-in from a community of learners. Attendees will become familiar with a variety of assignments which incorporate 3D printing and modeling into a liberal arts curriculum.
