Abstract

The Additive Manufacturing Workforce Advancement Training Coalition and Hub (AM-WATCH) targets to address gaps in the current knowledge base of manufacturing professionals through the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) based educational materials, delivery of professional development activities, support provided to 30+ instructors per year, and expanded outreach activities targeting K-12 and community college teachers and students. Tennessee Tech University is collaborating with the University of Louisville, Sinclair Community College, National Resource Center for Materials Technology Education, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and industry in the development of cutting-edge and multi-dimensional educational modules and activities for instructors. Developed materials are presented to 30+ instructors through intensive two-day AM Studios every year. While instructors learn the latest trends and technologies in AM, they also grasp the ABET Student Outcomes and Continuous Improvement. This paper reports the current practices made in these studios and feedback received from the instructors.
