A fully-articulated sustainability plan may include some revenue generation and diverse sources of income. But for projects and centers operating as part of a college or university, the support your institution can offer is invaluable – staff time? Office space? Paid positions? -- and needs to be sought and managed with care. In this webinar, veteran ATE PI Elaine Craft will share some of her strategies for how her grant-funded initiatives work closely with her institution to their mutual benefit.

Ongoing

Land classification is an important first step to assessing land cover and land use. This advanced webinar will provide lectures and hands-on activities focused on using satellite imagery for land cover classification. In two, four hour sessions, attendees will learn how to acquire Landsat imagery, display it in an open-source Geographic Information System (GIS), analyze spectral signatures of land cover types, and conduct a supervised land cover classification. Both sessions will feature a lecture, followed by time for participants to complete hands-on exercises. Instructors will remain online to answer questions and provide guidance and feedback. In addition to the exercises, there will be one online homework assignment. Completion of the homework and live attendance at both lectures are required to receive a certificate of completion.

Please note: Due to high demand, registration for this training is now closed. All materials, including recordings, will be available by February 14.

Mentor-Connect cohort participants selected for one-on-one mentoring are invited to meet their mentors, get training and resources for proposal development for potential National Science Foundation (NSF), Advanced Technological Education (ATE) funding. This is a kick-off to the approximately 9 months of work that will occur towards submission of a competitive grant proposal.

Session 1: What’s changed? Understanding the Updates to FAA Drone Regulations

Session 2: When’s a lawyer needed? Understanding the legal issues surrounding drones.

Small-scale projects need small-scale evaluation. Properly scoping an evaluation for a small project requires defining realistic process and outcome indicators and maximizing use of limited resources. In addition, evaluations need to be planned to produce timely and compelling evidence to set the stage for future funding and project growth. In the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education (ATE) program, "small grants" are $200,000 or less over three years, awarded to community colleges that have not been funded by ATE within the past 10 years. Webinar participants will learn the basics of small-scale evaluation, using a typical ATE small project as the case example

Session 3: What equipment and software do I need to get started? Understanding what’s needed for your drone mission. 

Competitive grants for the NSF ATE program must be built on at least one innovative idea and the goals must be well-defined and clearly explained. However, framing an innovative idea and clearly explaining goals can be difficult. Further, proposal development requires a great deal of planning and a detailed timeline. This session will focus on planning for grant proposal development and will explore how to determine whether or not an idea is innovative, what is meant by developing and explaining goals clearly and what must be considered in planning development work and the timeline for such work.
