NCSL International Serving the World of Measurement: Meeting Education and Training Needs of the Future
Georgia L. Harris, National Institute for Standards and Technology
This white paper has been developed to serve as a discussion piece for NCSLI strategic planning in the area of metrology training and education. We hope to identify and summarize short-term and long-term needs and direction as well as potential strategies to meet metrology training and education needs of today and the future. It has not been possible to track the inputs of the many participants at every session that has been held in 2005 alone, but suffice it to say, that this summary reflects the thoughts and opinions of well over one hundred metrology professionals, most all of whom have expressed the need for a strategically focused effort on ensuring metrology education and training needs of the future. This paper is being presented at the 2005 NCSLI Workshop and Symposium where additional solicitation of ideas and priorities will be requested from all participants through session discussions, kiosks, and informal conversations. Additional input to help prioritize objectives will also be requested through use of the NCSLI Newsletter and website.
