Technology: Many professors in non-STEM disciplines are interested in new and emerging technologies but don't think that they can incorporate it into their classes. This e-poster will discuss two emerging technologies (3D scanning and game development) and the contexts in which they can be used in the creation of course projects. By offering projects that utilize technology, students can both learn new transferable skills as well as experience an engaging alternative to the traditional course paper.
Evidence: After working with classes on non-conventional projects that used technology, the student work that was produced showed ingenuity and engagement. When offered the opportunity to explore as part of their class, students were more willing to put in time to create with these new technologies. Final projects showed everything from online environments to games that illustrated concepts from the class. In addition, the idea of utilizing technology to "make" things as a sign of student success is well documented in makerspace literature, as well as in literature about Digital Humanities.
Broader Impacts: The nature of this e-poster is to encourage faculty from non-STEM disciplines to become more involved with technology in class projects. By incorporating new technologies, students are given the ability to broaden their knowledge base and gain skills that will help them upon graduation.
