How can we help you?
Jeff Briggs, Regional Director, Advanced Manufacturing North Region, can be a resource to those in manufacturing education and industry who are being affected by Coronavirus. "The good news is that the businesses I work with in China are resuming manufacturing activities," said Briggs. "If we all work together to reduce the spread here now, I hope this crisis will resolve in the next few months."
"In the meantime, our manufacturing educator community can come together with new educational methods to continue teaching the next generation of designers, engineers, machinists, welders and technicians. For instance, this might be the ideal time for industry partners to give a virtual tour or present some aspect of their business to students via teleconference. Industry mentors could make online guest presentations or answer Q&A from students. I'm eager to help by connecting those who are interested in exploring the possibilities."
Briggs has asked readers to share with him via email:
- How are you dealing with teaching a hands-on subject remotely?
- What resources have you found that others might want to use?
- How can we help you?
As we collect ideas and resources, they can be posted on the Advanced Manufacturing North Region
