Webinar - ET Programs at a Distance
Monday September 28, 2020, 1:00 – 2:30 PM (Eastern Time)
Institutions dealing with the pandemic have been forced to shift lectures and laboratory experiences to observe social distancing rules and/or move online. Engineering Technology programs have a strong focus on applications and practice which is frequently enhanced by close collaboration between students and faculty. In this new paradigm, we need to develop and apply new strategies to prepare our graduates to support the Engineering needs of industry.
This session will focus on the disruption caused by the current pandemic. The panel will present some of the unique challenges and successes of their programs. However, the objective is to foster a group discussion that explores a broad exchange of ideas specific to Engineering Technology education.
