Instructors attending the Edu2Mfg Train the Trainer session in May 2020 suggested that it would be helpful to share design challenges. These can range from something simple to engage students at the beginning of class to a more involved project to start off a new unit. Many involve just a few supplies such as paper clips, paper and scissors. Pete Delosa, Golden Sierra High School, has set up a Google drive that you can add your projects to and browse other teachers’ design challenges. Check out Design Challenges.
April 1, 2020 — Shop Talk is a discussion with CTE teachers in the Sacramento region focused on teaching Advanced Manufacturing remotely. See more videos on the Edu2Mfg You Tube channel.
As part of the collaborative effort by advanced manufacturing instructors and industry partners, teachers are sharing their video libraries. This is just one of many ways the teaching community is responding to the Coronavirus closing educational institutions. On-line instruction is particularly challenging for classes where students develop hands-on skills needed for critical occupations.
