Reverse Curriculum Design of Lean Manufacturing for Distance Education: ETD IT/IET Interest Group Abstract
Due to globalization and recent trends, Lean manufacturing is an important area of competency for Industrial Technology students. As demographics of students change, the method of delivering curriculum changes as well. The development of a Lean manufacturing course to an on-line, asynchronous method from a traditional face-to-face method is discussed here. With the natural increase in knowledge in technology field, a reverse design curriculum model is utilized. A reverse design model begins with the end results of learning compared to a traditional curriculum model of ‘covering’ the material to ensure students have the competencies in knowledge and skills to prepare them for a global workplace.
