About Us

For many of today’s technicians the Future of Work is already in focus. They are cross-disciplinary workers, immersed in diverse platforms and interrelated systems that once belonged to single industry sectors. This podcast series will explore the horizons of work from the perspective of industry partners, two-year college educators, technicians and NSF ATE leaders who are working together to transform technician education.

Episode 9: The Year in Review

Episode 10: Digital Transformation

Digital Transformation Specialists challenge companies' technology status quo. It requires the usual technical skills -- analysis, diagnostics, testing, and documentation – plus excellent communication skills. A Digital Transformation Specialist must be able to educate (and persuade) their team members who are engineers, IT staff, and other technicians about the value and use of new technologies. With the rapid pace at which technology is advancing, expect to see this position appearing in many job search sites.

Episode 10: Digital Transformation

Episode 4: Design Thinking for Gender Equity

We struggle so often in our classrooms and in the larger educational systems to encourage women to participate and when they do participate, to persist in technology programs. Technical program enrollments seldom have more than 20% women. On the industry side, high tech also faces challenges in gender equity. Guests Alexa Frank and Rachael Munkacsi, Deloitte, and Hope Cotner, CORD, discuss how some of the strategies and lessons learned from Deloitte’s work on designing equality in the workplace translate to the classroom environment.

Episode 3: One of the Key Things to Measure — OEE

A gap may exist between industry practice and what our students learn and practice in our education environment if they don’t learn about Overall Equipment Effectiveness. Today nearly every industry is digitally transforming itself whether they're producing biopharmaceuticals, semiconductor chips, corn chips, or cellphones. The accompanying high levels of automation and sensors monitoring every process and every piece of equipment generates an unbelievable amount of data. This data can help answer the questions, "How efficient are we?" And "Can we be better?"

Episode 2: Who Owns the Skills Gap?

Over the last ten years, the skills gap has increasingly been the subject of business roundtables, government agency forums and think tank research. Employers report struggling to find new workers with the skills they need. This means that both entry-level employees and incumbent workers need upskilling. Our guest in this episode says that if you think you're going to hire somebody off the street that knows how to press every button, forget it. So who owns this skills gap?

Episode 2: Who Owns the Skills Gap?

Episode 1: The Challenges

As technology evolves so tasks and occupations transform. We know that demand for some positions involving tasks that can be automated are going to decline and in some cases disappear, while entirely new occupations will emerge. When we say technology, what the technologies are we talking about? We mean advanced manufacturing, engineering technology, biotechnology, information and security technologies, including cybersecurity, and agricultural and environmental technologies. Every one of these technologies focuses on the fields in which we need a skilled technical workforce. This week our podcast host introduces some of the challenges in hiring and training workers in a rapidly changing workplace.
