MAET Refresher Course

We're here to help you!

2019 MAET Refresher
Galway, Ireland
Dates: July 8, 2019 - July 12, 2019 (we recommend arriving on July 7 and departing on July 13)

For the past several years our alumni have emailed and said “I miss MAET, I want to come back!” We are humbled and honored by this request and are pleased to offer a “refresher” course for our alumni (or any edtechie interested in keeping up with the latest and greatest!).

Conversations in the educational social spheres have called for “The Need for a New Education.” A few years ago, the dean of the MIT Graduate school stepped down to start her own non-profit university with “No majors, no lectures, no classrooms.” The 2019 MAET Refresher will be an opportunity to entrench ourselves in experiences which allow us to chart a new path for our learning communities. Led by MAET Program Director Aman Yadav, refresher participants will think deeply about educational issues. This year’s refresher provides an opportunity for you to explore the intersections between creativity and computing across K-12 contexts and subject areas. We will provide practical tools and approaches to allow you to integrate computational thinking and computer science in your educational context and discuss affordances of computing to engage students in creativity. As a participant, at minimum, you will walk away with strategies, tools and techniques to facilitate these conversations in your own educational or work environments. We expect you may walk away with much more.

In addition to reinventing education as we know it, you will also have an opportunity to reconnect and relive (and make new) MAET memories. In true MAET style, we will supplement your academic experience with optional weekend cultural excursions.

Why should I do it?

EXPLORE computing and creativity in your context.  
CREATE artifacts and approaches for integrating computational thinking and computer science in your learning community.
SHARE with current MAET students and instructors and potentially with some of your cohort classmates!

How much is it?

The NON-CREDIT workshop rate is $450.00 USD

Housing can be arranged directly through NUI Galway.
Meals can be purchased on a daily basis in the cafeteria.

The Refresher Course is not eligible for Federal Financial Aid.

How long will it take me?

The MAET Refresher course is a one week commitment.

How do I apply?

All are welcome (even if you did not graduate from MSU)! Complete the 2019 MAET Summer Reservation Form to let us know that you’re interested in the refresher running in 2019 and we’ll be sure to reach out with updates!
