  • Masonry Educators’ Workshop 2022

    The Masonry Educators’ Workshop (MEW) provides educators with the resources and background needed to effectively teach masonry, especially at the college and university level. This workshop was presented virtually June 21-23, 2022. The workshop is targeted towards educators at North American colleges and universities who teach or will be teaching masonry in architecture, engineering, and construction management. While those teaching actual masonry construction, or those outside of North America may find value in some topics, the focus will be teaching masonry design, detailing, construction, and maintenance/repair to undergraduate and graduate students preparing to be architects, architectural engineers, civil/structural engineers and construction managers using primarily U.S. based codes and standards. New faculty will find the workshop of value as they plan and prepare to teach masonry, and existing faculty will learn updates to codes, standards, materials, and practices that their students should be aware of.
