Abstract: This paper presents data from three Makerspaces and examines the extent to which facilitative roles, as articulated by facilitators and their supervisors, are subsequently practiced within the Makerspaces. The data was coded for themes of facilitation as captured in field notes and interviews with personnel at three different levels of seniority (senior executive, manager and on-the-ground facilitator). We suggest possible institutional factors that impact the emergence and expression of facilitative roles and seek to improve Makerspace pedagogy.
