RVC Holds Dual Credit Boot Camp

Rock Valley College (RVC) conducted their dual credit boot camp for MET 100 (Introductory CAD and Print Reading). RVC faculty member Denise Anderson facilitated a group of high school instructors through the experience of a student in her MET 100 class.

Instructors worked through an introductory student tutorial on SolidWorks, software used for computer-aided design including creating engineering drawings. Instructors asked questions and grappled with typical issues and confusion that students experience when first learning the SolidWorks program. 

Through direct instruction from Denise and peer-mentoring among one another, high school instructors worked diligently to ensure their ability to teach MET 100 course to their high school students but at the college level.
