The guide covers such teaching topics as lesson planning, lesson delivery, student assessment and useful resources for new instructors.

natef-logoThe National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) has developed an online guide targeted toward automotive technicians who are interested in transitioning to an instructor role. The guide covers such teaching topics as lesson planning, lesson delivery, student assessment and useful resources for new instructors. The NATEF New Instructor Guide, which is available free to all instructors, was developed through a grant from Ingersoll Rand.

NATEF said it created this guide to help new automotive instructors be more successful in making the transition from doing to teaching. It also provides resources for instructors already in the field.

The NATEF New Instructor Guide includes short video segments that outline best practices, tips and techniques for:

• Developing quality lesson plans
• Delivering lesson content so it engages students
• Managing successful lab sessions
• Assessing your students progress and mastery
• Developing the most valuable advisory board
• Staying connected with the current automotive industry

The guide has a list of potential mentors for new instructors to contact for assistance, and also includes printable resources such as lesson planning templates and job sheets.
