What It's All About

The Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology will deploy corporate training spaces. The intent is to provide a space where companies and the community can offer short-term training on new technologies, such as teaching programmers to use Ruby on Rails, or introducing employees to new engines, fuel systems, applications, software, industrial robots, e-commerce tools, records management systems and more. If you were to design a game-changing training on a new technology for our organization, what would the training be like? What technology would be the focus of the training? How would the training be delivered?

WID'S PRIMARY FUNCTIONS ARE TO:

  • leverage existing MCC resources through collaborative strategies;
  • bring to scale successful programs while implementing innovative industry partnerships involving credit, non-credit, proof-of-concept, open enrollment, entrepreneurial resources and job profiling for customized training;
  • work closely with Adult Basic Education/GED to make direct connections between specific companies and specific students to clarify the pathway to jobs while enhancing motivation for employability skills, literacy (i.e. reading, writing, math and technology); and
  • embrace both industry and instructional innovations.
