April Newsletter Offers Tools to Teach CTE Remotely

The April issue of the Edu2Mfg newsletter focuses on the innovative ways instructors and industry partners in the Sacramento region, California and the nation are working together to continue educating our future workforce outside of the usual classrooms and labs. This is particularly challenging for hands-on advanced manufacturing courses and other Career Technical Education (CTE) classes.

Through video conference calls, called Shop Talk, teachers are sharing their experiences and methods. Industry representatives are retooling their offerings and making online simulations and tools freely available.

Makers and manufacturers are rising to the call to produce equipment needed by those in the health care field.

Teachers Can Join Shop Talk

Instructors in Advanced Manufacturing Educator Community are Invited to Join “Shop Talk” on Thursday, March 26

Edu2Mfg is hosting a Shop Talk video conference call for Advanced Manufacturing teachers to share how they are overcoming the challenges of delivering their courses online.

According to Steve Dicus, retired CTE high school teacher and consultant to the Advanced Manufacturing North Region, connecting teachers to a community of educators is more important than ever before.

“Recent Shop Talk video conference calls have proven to be valuable to participants,” said Dicus. “We are building a positive community of teachers who can share their best practices. With the current situation, we all benefit from collaborating and sharing our experiences teaching students remotely.”
