This presentation provides an overview of recent trends on how pedagogy is evolving in the digital age across all disciplines toward open-ended approaches that rely on creativity, ideation, emotional and team intelligence, design, and prototyping. A pedagogy of making inspired by these trends will be presented. The fundamental differences with traditional pedagogic approaches in higher education include the primacy of making over thinking, the need to nurture a dual learning mindset combining the scientific method and analytical skills with the ability to reason aesthetically, the development of emotional intelligence, the role of instructors as coaches and facilitators, and the importance of agile iteration.
