The paper “Promoting diversity and increasing equity for all through open access to university’s digital fabrication facilities” has been presented at the Ireland International Conference on Education (IICE 2019).
The paper presents four case studies that describe the practical outcomes of workshops in which students engage with remote access to digital fabrication technologies through the NEWTON project platform. Promoting diversity and increasing equity are goals shared by many European universities, but achieving these aims in the classroom is often hard to do. Thanks to the use of NEWTON’s innovative technologies and educational approaches, Fab Lab Madrid CEU (the digital fabrication laboratory based at CEU University) is providing knowledge more accessible for all, new learning opportunities and open access to digital fabrication facilities for all.
The Ireland International Conference on Education (IICE) is an international refereed conference dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practices in education. The IICE promotes collaborative excellence between academicians and professionals from Education.
