Boston Business Journal Speaks with President Thompson About Distance Learning
March 20, 2020
Wentworth President Mark Thompson was among area university officials who spoke to Boston Business Journal in their “Arts, engineering colleges face extra hurdles moving classes online” article. He speaks of the laudable way that staff and faculty have quickly adapted to a new landscape given an outbreak of Coronavirus.
“This is a bit more challenging for engineering schools because we pride ourselves on hands-on learning, labs and maker-spaces,” Thompson says in the article. “The good news is not only have people stepped up but they are ready for it. They are used to using technology. I’m pleased with how it is going.”
