First semester this year was filled with learning curves as staff and students adjusted to virtual teaching practices. Programs were tasked with engaging their students in the curriculum via new and unfamiliar methods, mainly video conferencing. In an effort to prevent Zoom fatigue, many programs decided to create kits for students to work on while at home.
As of Jan. 19, students are back at OSTC-SE! Nine of our programs have returned to face-to-face instruction. Four days a week, students arrive, take off their coats, and hop right into the labs for the hands-on learning our campus is suited for. Each program is conducting interesting, action-oriented lessons aimed at preparing students for careers and post-secondary education.
Meet Peyton Maliszewski, a former Construction Technology student who is currently enrolled in the Welding program. Like many of our juniors, Peyton decided to return to OSTC-SE for his senior year in a different program.
