GRCC staff travel to the MSU HUB

6 GRCC staff, representing the Learning Environments Team (faculty, I.T. and DL) recently visited the MSU Digital Scholarship Lab, Makerspace & HUB.

Their HUB uses a design-based approach to project management and implementation.  An interdisciplinary team approaches projects for faculty and other campus departments with a lean mindset, allowing failure and rapid adaptation to design – great for fostering innovation.

Dedicated space for faculty and community exists in their Makerspace, which contains many of the items we have in the ATC’s Maker Lab (3D Scanner, 3D Printers, Vinyl Cutters, BR viewing systems.)  Additionally, they house book making systems.  Their space is intentionally in the same building as the library to allow for greatest access, along with multiple staff to assist in the planning and use of tools.

They also have a 360-degree projection space in which 15-20 people can experience a group immersive presentation (six 4K projectors create an image that surrounds the audience.)

Overall, it was a great demonstration of the value of having dedicated space for collaboration and experimentation.
