Educators Convene to Address Instructor Shortage

Earlier this month, members of Ohio TechNet, the Ohio Engineering Technology Educators Association, and the Ohio Manufacturing Institute launched the Instructor Shortage Learning Community to address the shortage of career and technical instructors who possess both manufacturing experience and teaching qualifications.

According to a recent TechNet survey, 94% of the responding institutions indicated that they had difficulty recruiting instructors in areas such as Industry 4.0 skills, robotics and automation, and tool and die.

Manufacturers are encouraged to join the Learning Community to provide their perspective. Use this email to request more details. 5/25/2022
