Developing The Maker's Mindset

This is the third episode of Taylor'sphere: Education Redefined, a podcast series where we speak with voices from Taylor's University about Taylor'sphere: a uniquely curated education ecosystem within Taylor's University that helps future proof its graduates by nurturing their three intelligences: Intellect, Practical Wisdom and Craft.

 

In this episode, we're taking a look at the Taylor’s Mereka Makerspace. Featuring its Co-Director, Mike Choong, we explore its role in the University, the significance of having this space and its resources, and the importance of an interdisciplinary education. We also discuss DuckiePi - a student-led project at Taylor’s University that aims to help underprivileged students in Malaysia get access to online education with an affordable e-Learning device.

Produced by: Daryl Ong

Presented by: Christine Wong
