ASTM International Expands Resources for Educators With Launch of New Professor’s Tool Kit

ASTM International has announced a new academic offering for university professors to include technical standards as part of their engineering and business curricula. The ASTM Professor’s Tool Kit contains various informational tools to help educators promote awareness of standards in the classroom.

Familiarity with standards can enhance a student’s knowledge and skills before entering the workplace. The Professor’s Tool Kit offers a collection of ASTM materials in one place, so instructors may pick and choose which components work best for their classes.

Some of the supplies featured in the kit include:

  • Five scripted PowerPoint modules;
  • Sample syllabi and standards;
  • Short videos on the value of standards and student membership in ASTM;
  • Articles about standards education;
  • ASTM industry sector overviews (metals, energy, construction, chemicals, consumer products, healthcare and more);
  • Standards case studies; and
  • Informational brochures on student membership and benefits, ASTM’s digital library, copyright and more.

As an added benefit for international students and professors, a number of the materials have been translated into Spanish, Mandarin and Portuguese.

ASTM International promotes standards education in colleges and universities through its free student membership program, which offers several benefits for full-time undergraduate or graduate students. Students have the opportunity to learn more about standards with free subscriptions to ASTM’s magazine and newsletter, free attendance at ASTM symposia and workshops, publishing opportunities, scholarships and paper competitions. Upon graduation, students are eligible for full ASTM membership at a reduced fee.
