Welding instructors can take advantage of a new “curriculum in a cabinet” from Lincoln Electric.

The Teaching Aid Toolbox is a ready-made instructional resource that contains a number of visual aids for use in the classroom.

This mobile cabinet – fully stocked with a comprehensive array of tools and accessories from various welding and cutting processes – helps bring the curriculum typically associated with the shop setting into the classroom setting. The Teaching Aid Toolbox is fully supported with Lincoln Electric U/LINC curriculum.

Also included are the Cutaway Harris gas regulator and oxyfuel torch to allow students to get familiar with the tools’ structure, operation and application. Additionally, a set of weld sample coupons allow educators to illustrate welding joints and typical beads and weld discontinuity flashcards help explain common weld flaws.

“At Lincoln Electric, we know that teaching is about connecting with your students. The Teaching Aid Toolbox allows you to help them experience welding and cutting tools before they go to the lab,” says Jason Scales, business manager, education, Lincoln Electric. “If a student can see a tool and hold it in his or her hand, the learning experience immediately shifts to a higher level and the result is a greater depth of understanding.”

Students enter the learning environment with different learning styles. The contents of the Teaching Aid Toolbox are ideal for any learning style, including visual and tactile. By bringing actual welding and cutting tools into the classroom, instructors can better illustrate the principles of each process.

Instructors also can join the Lincoln Electric education community by signing up to receive the “First Pass” newsletter, which delivers the latest information and updates for welding instructors, educators and trainers including curriculum and training materials, supplements, education news and updates.
