LEESBURG, Va. — The ASE Education Foundation is hosting a free virtual instructor training conference on Aug. 4-5 for high school and post-secondary instructors in automobile, truck and collision repair programs.
"Although we would prefer to meet in person for our annual meeting, we have developed an excellent alternative that will provide educational offerings for our high school and college instructors," Mike Coley, ASE Education Foundation president, said.
"We have put together a robust agenda and the speakers will address some of the most pressing issues that instructors will face this fall," he said.
Topics include discussion of the three scenarios for instruction: in-person, virtual and hybrid.
The conference also will feature:
- the T-TEN "Safe Lab" plan;
- keeping distance learners engaged;
- classroom management tools in the e-learning curriculum.
- how COVID-19 affects ASE program accreditation;
- putting work-based learning to work; and
- developing students' employability skills.
The sessions are scheduled to last 30 to 90 minutes and will count toward the 20-hour annual update training requirement, the foundation said.
