42 PROFESSIONAL STRATEGIES STRUCTURED PROBLEM SOLVING (SPS) FOR TEACHERS AT GLOBALFOUNDRIES "SPS for Teachers" is a two-day training developed by GLOBALFOUNDRIES to introduce K-12 teachers to the Structured Problem Solving (SPS) techniques used in the semiconductor industry. Day 1 of the course consists of three distinctive parts: The first is a high- level overview of the eight SPS disciplines (8D) with heavy emphasis on creating a problem statement, gathering data on the problem, and determining root cause using either a process map, fault tree or "5 whys." The second part takes place in GLOBALFOUNDRIES' Fab 8 cleanroom where participants will be introduced to several process areas and how they apply SPS on a daily basis. The third and final part of the training is facilitated by an SPS expert and involves group work to solve a complex case. At the end of Day 1, participants are asked to develop a unique challenge to be solved by their students using the SPS techniques covered in the training. Location: GlobalFoundries Dates: 5/9 or 8/8 Time: 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Facilitator: Clay Nagel, GlobalFoundries Registration: 5/9 https://bit.ly/2z4ttBt 8/8 https://bit.ly/2JKoWrJ In this 8-hour blended learning course, we will dive into and apply various formative assessment techniques to help make student learning more engaging and effective.
