Abstract

Martin Wallace, Morgan Chivers, and Ryan Hulla will present the results of a student teamwork and collaboration study, using an “assembling effective teams” homework assignment and a semester-long, teambased academic library makerspace project. Students in two upper-level undergraduate classes, Technology in Art Education and Engineering Project Management, took self-assessment-surveys at the beginning of the course and again after having completed their makerspace projects. Results show that students in both courses significantly overestimate their competence in the pre-course survey. Engineering students rate themselves higher in both pre- and post-surveys than art education students. There are signs that the “assembling effective teams” homework assignment has a significant effect in student self-ratings. Other signs show that the project has significant effect on teamwork and collaboration. Prior makerspace experience appears to have no effect at this sample size.
