Teaching and Learning
In many ways, TSTC is really a school for wizards. Yes, wizards! TSTC hires experts, absolute wizards in their industries’ fields, and they are the ones who make the magic that transforms our students, people who seek to make magic themselves one day, into tomorrow’s industrial wizards. When students peer into a computer screen or a textbook, they’re virtually looking into crystal balls and seeing themselves in the future, a happy, productive one. Along the way to transforming themselves into highly-skilled technicians capable of working magic themselves, they’ll be fully engaged in compelling learning communities where students experiment, experience, theorize, and apply their new, cutting-edge skills.
Care to cast a spell over whole classrooms of students and inspire them to peer into the future and become the highly-skilled technicians they see in their textbooks? There’s more to the act than waving a magic wand or laser pointer and saying, “Presto!” Only the best of wizards can truly transform people. Check out the life and times of a few of TSTC’s best by going to our faculty blog.
Even the masters of TSTC’s magic need assistants to help supervise students as they work in labs to apply the skills they’ve learned from instructors. Lab assistants can find themselves running a lab alone, say, for students who come in to work outside of class hours, or they can find themselves working with other lab assistants while an instructor teaches. While assistants aren’t expected to have quite the potent abracadabra of a seasoned instructor, they should be skilled enough to pull the occasional rabbit.
