In this episode, we’re chatting with Kristin Fontichiaro, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Information at the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Kristin and I spend some time talking about a current project of hers that is focused on building student capacity to interpret data and statistics. She worked with librarians throughout the state of Michigan to develop and implement professional development modules for that effort. We also chat about another passion of hers, maker spaces, and how they can be used to engage learners in creative and stimulating ways. Learn more about the Michigan Makers project by visiting their website, and you can follow Kristin on Twitter at @activelearning.
