Teacher Workplace Experience

In December 2016, Technology & Engineering teachers from DVR high schools visited industrial sites and revised lesson plans to incorporate the latest information about workplace practices and requirements.

 

 

Teacher Classroom Exercises
One of the workshop activities is to design a relevant and engaging learning exercise that identifies the purpose and objective of a particular strategy, and then define the materials and process needed to accomplish that strategy.
