Learning to fly: How training and workforce development are changing in the era of COVID-19

In this fourth issue of Ceramic & Glass Manufacturing, we look at how some companies and universities are conducting workforce development during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main story features interviews with representatives from industry and academia, including Eduardo Bascaran (human resources manager at Corning Inc.), Richard Brow (professor at Missouri S&T), Geoff Brennecka (associate professor at Colorado School of Mines), and Vicki Maple (vice president of economic development and innovative workforce solutions at Central Ohio Technical College). It is followed by tips for developing a modern manufacturing workforce from a holistic approach.

In an accompanying article, Corning researchers demonstrate a unique process able to make high-purity, thin, continuous ceramic ribbons with a dense and fine microstructure. Then, an application note by Gladding, McBean, demonstrates how five recently installed bulk bag dischargers and flexible screw conveyors help them streamline batching and mixing of clay blends for different products.
