Abstract: Attaining the benefits of maker-centered learning requires well-trained educators to facilitate complex open-ended projects, a process that begins with teacher education. This study examines how educators experience maker-centered learning, and how they seek to apply these principles to teaching. Ten educator-students were interviewed from a graduate-level makerspace course. Our findings show that educators gained maker skills and a maker mindset along with experiential knowledge, which inspired specific technologies and learning goals for their future students.
