Abstract

This study focuses on designing a makerspace course module offered for preservice teachers in an undergraduate learning technologies minor program. Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) framework informs the design of the modules, activities, and assignments in this study. The findings show that collaboration in online platforms is essential to better improve makerspace knowledge of preservice teachers. Following emerging themes are found in this study; 1) Clear assessment criteria needed; 2) Several activities should be moved to the first module to monitor collaborative learning; 3) A semester-long course needed for more collaborative work; 4) Course workload should be lowered; 5) Organization of the course supports collaboration; 6) A textbook needed for a more structured learning; 7) Collaborative tasks are supportive for learning; 8) Optional assignments needed; and 9) Supplemental materials should be added to the modules.
