APEC 2023 Keynote: Developing the Power Electronics Workforce Through MOOC Degree Programs and Public Educational Videos - Robert W. Erickson & Katherine A. Kim
Cultivation of a workforce with expertise in power electronics is crucial to building the future of clean energy, transportation electrification, and other emerging technologies. Until recently, traditional on-campus degree programs were the only way to gain a comprehensive power electronics education. Online education has opened the doors to broader accessibility of power electronics education. This talk will discuss a massively open online course (MOOC) degree program and public educational videos to develop the power electronics workforce, including survey results, successes, and challenges.
