The Masonry Society, with the support of the Masonry Association of Florida, the Florida Concrete and Products Association, the Brick Industry Association, the International Masonry Institute, the National Concrete Masonry Association, the Portland Cement Association, and other organizations, will host a 2018 Masonry Educators’ Workshop to be held at the University of South Florida in beautiful Tampa, Florida on March 11-13. Dr. Rajan Sen who is a Professor and Jefferson Science Fellow at USF will serve as the workshop host.
The Masonry Educator’s workshop (MEW) was formerly called the University Professors’ Masonry Workshop (UPMW) but was recently renamed to be clear that educators other than university professors are welcome. The Workshop is designed to assist educators with creating or offering masonry courses so that students will be positively exposed to masonry and feel more comfortable with it when used on their projects. Educational sessions on masonry design, detailing and construction will be presented, panel discussions on a number of topics are planned, and a hands-on masonry laying activity will be offered. Additional details on the program will be posted here as they become available later this fall.
