Online resource for welding curriculum development
- Published: September 18, 2015
Lincoln Electric has launched an online resource for welding and cutting education, U/LINC, a curriculum of lesson plans, videos, student handouts, assessment tests and presentations that will help to streamline the teaching experience and free welding school instructors from curriculum development.
With more than 1,500 teaching assets and growing, this subscription-based online learning management system allows instructors at high schools, technical colleges, universities, unions, or private industrial training centers to focus on teaching in the classroom, rather than spend hours developing custom curriculum from available sources.
“The era of stand-alone DVDs and textbooks is coming to an end,” states Dr. Jason Scales, Lincoln Electric manager of educational services. “We can deliver a specific lesson plan and matching student or presentation materials over the web and update the files immediately whenever welding or teaching advances require a change. Whether you are teaching stick and GMAW or are ready to tackle robotics, CNC plasma cutting or manufacturing engineering, U/LINC curriculum is ready to help you get your training started now.”
Educational topics include safety, principles of welding, SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, GTAW, thermal and CNC plasma cutting, mathematics in welding, careers, aluminum, stainless, robotics, fabrication, manufacturing and engineering, and pipe.
