If you don’t believe that the concepts used in the world of manufacturing to improve efficiency can apply to the world of education, Madison Chan politely disagrees.

“Education stands out as an area where efficient resource usage is key and this makes it an excellent candidate for process improvement and problem-solving methodologies,” says Chan, an engineering management major and one of the directors of the workshop.

With that in mind, she and advisor Aldo McLean, assistant professor in engineering management and technology, are inviting teachers and administrators from across Hamilton County to attend their Problem-Solving workshop, the first of three workshops on the same subjects.
Held in the Engineering, Math and Computer Science building, the free, three-hour workshop is designed to “get to the root of the problem, brainstorm solutions and institute a fix that will last.”

The concepts presented will include:

  • Learn how to make classroom resources go farther.
  • Do more with the time you have.
  • Create personalized solutions for students and classrooms.

The first workshop on Saturday is an instructional session; the second puts the tools learned in the first session into practice. There’s no physical meeting for the second workshop; participants are contacted remotely.

The third is in January with a problem-solving session based on what participants learned in the second workshop. The date for the third session will be announced later.

After the completion of the series, teachers and administrators will be given a certificate that can be used for credit in the Hamilton County school system.
