My own work focuses on researching learning in informal settings, leading professional development programs for informal educators, and combining these two such that the work of informal educators is the research. A major effort of Group Six, right now, is designing a public “making” space, and using it as a professional development lab for the field to experiment with learning design and facilitation approaches.
