Abstract: This paper describes the design and development of an innovative maker education course. The course was designed to be responsive to students with diverse interests in education and consistent with the principles of making that it aimed to teach. The design was a mastery-oriented learning environment which leveraged a modular design and a digital badging system to afford students opportunities to focus their learning experience on aspects of making relevant to their own contexts. It represents the first stage of a design-based research project that ultimately aims to develop a set of design principles for designing maker education courses.
