"Manufacturing makes up 12.5% of the US economy. At the same time 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms are small businesses. Net new jobs are a measure of economic growth and 64 percent of net new private-sector jobs are found in small businesses. The Maker Movement is far more important than a faire or a magazine. It’s a symbol of how our manufacturing economy is adding on a new tier. It used to be that manufacturing meant big factories with assembly lines and huge costs for capital equipment. In the 1960’s and 70’s manufacturing equipment and computers looked similar. They were so big they took up an entire room. Computers got smaller and more powerful and now the same is happening with manufacturing tools. These megatrends mean that the grass roots displays at Maker Faire, STEM education, big companies, and startups that are part of the maker movement are building the tools that will give rise to a new breed of manufacturer. They are giving rise to millions of Indie Manufacturers, soul crafters, making products they are passionate about. This new tier is a tremendous source of net new jobs and they act more like authors or rock bands in that they do work for fans, not just for customers."

This month's #facultyhoa  is looking pretty awesome!!
Course designers must simultaneously consider budget, program and course goals, faculty and student needs, technology, and other elements. With all these competing factors does the student perspective sometimes get lost?

During this hangout, members of the Sloan-C team  will discuss their student experiences and how they have impacted their course design decisions.  So, please join us as we discuss how we work collaboratively to design courses that address multiple student perspectives.
