Masters degree for "Makers"

I need to take masters credit worthy classes, I already have a Masters degree so want to take a greater range of courses. What classes would you put in a Masters degree for someone as part of the "Maker" community?

I need to take these classes for continuing education as part of my Educators state licensing requirements and advancement in my School District. I have already taken and participated in maker classes and activities. Examples; lots of woodworking, 3D printing, small electrics projects, building my own computers (hardware not programming), and I just took a day long intro to iron forging class. My state (Illinois), and my school district don't take personal activities or workshops as credits. I am a Middle School Technology teacher who is introducing a lot of hands on work that fits with the maker ideal in my class. General ideas or areas would be great but any specific course suggestions would need to be online or located in NE IL, or SE Wisconsin and be at the 500 level or above. My current Masters is in instructional Technology so that area is out of consideration at the moment.
