Laney College900 Fallon StOaklandCA94607United States

The Institute is designed for community and technical college faculty members to learn about new skill standards, tools, and how to infuse energy management curriculum into existing HVAC, environmental controls, or building performance programs.

The institute will cover the following key topics:

  • New skill standards for high-performance building technicians
  • Latest in building technology and tools from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL)
  • Project/problem-based learning applied to lab and capstone exercises
  • Tour of a local facility guided by the building manager

Community and technical college faculty who teach in building operations-related programs are encouraged to apply. If selected as a participant, you will be asked to develop a work plan and commit to its implementation at your college. 

This workshop is FREE for faculty who are approved to attend, generally one per college. BEST Center will cover air and ground transportation, meals, and hotel costs. Participants will be asked to arrive in the afternoon on Monday, January 6 in time for the Tuesday morning institute start time and depart no earlier than the afternoon of Friday, January 10.

The AACC John E. Roueche Future Leaders Institute, or Roueche-FLI, is an innovative leadership seminar designed for mid-level community college administrators who want to be leaders in their current positions or who are ready to move into a higher level of leadership. These individuals are currently in positions that are responsible for multiple employees, including faculty, administrators and/or staff and probably have titles such as Vice President, Dean, Associate Dean, Professor, Associate Professor or Director.

This will be a two part training day. Writing in the Disciplines workshop in the morning and a Math workshop in the afternoon.

When complex requests, such as extending deadlines for assignments, are presented, it can be difficult to know how to assess their reasonableness. Much time can be spent analyzing how to proceed. In the end, how to know if the accommodation would actually address a barrier and provide access? In this webinar, this question and propose a framework for considering challenging requests will be covered. Also modeling the proposed framework through the example of extended time for deadlines to provide a concrete example of its use. While the framework is not meant to be a checklist that would turn complex requests into routine decisions, having a structured approach to considering requests can increase confidence in decision-making.

Disability resource personnel are committed to designing campuses that are fully accessible. Participants will learn to identify opportunities for engagement and strategies for achieving routine inclusion in campus projects related to digital accessibility, with a minimum of technical expertise. The University of Arizona’s current DRC staff structure and AHEAD's involvement with procurement, IT initiatives, campus-wide and individual department outreach and collaborative presentations/workshops will be demonstrated as use-case examples to take back to the institution.

Utah Valley University College of Engineering & Technology800 W University PkwyOremUT84058United States

College of Engineering and Technology (CET) at the Utah Valley University is once more celebrating the Engineering and Technology Week. During these celebrations:

  • Students will tour the engineering and technology labs at UVU, have lunch and engage in fun hands-on projects sponsored by the UVU students.
  • Middle and High School students will receive scholarships for technology-related projects from their schools (see web page below for criteria).
  • Students will receive awards and gifts for the winning projects and/or for just visiting UVU.

Diseased states are typically characterized by the presence or absence of a biomarker. These biomarkers may be general characteristics of the environment (i.e. stiffness, pH) or specific biomacromolecules (i.e. peptides, nucleic acids, proteins, cell receptors). In this seminar, I will discuss synthetic strategies for generating nanoscale hydrogels that recognize and respond to multiple biological stimuli. These multi-responsive nanomaterials are useful for (i) actuating biological signals, (ii) targeting drug delivery, and (iii) facilitating tissue regeneration.

Presenter: John Clegg is currently a postdoctoral fellow in bioengineering in the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. He is also appointed as a postdoctoral fellow in the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard. John received his Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of South Carolina in 2014, and his masters and doctoral degrees from the University of Texas at Austin (MSE, Biomedical Engineering, 2016, MA, STEM Education, 2018, Ph.D., Biomedical Engineering, 2019).

In his research John designs and synthesizes hydrogels, which achieve targeted drug delivery through a combination of cell hitchhiking and responsiveness to the extracellular environment. He is interested in (1) Developing synthesis methods for generating novel hydrogel materials with precise network structure, as well as (2) Applying cell-material constructs to treat inflammatory disease, autoimmune disease, and cancer.

Many academic programs, especially at the graduate level, include internship and externship requirements. Colleges and universities have a clear obligation to ensure access to those academic experiences for students with disabilities, but the process of identifying what is reasonable and the need to involve so many more players can complicate achieving it. Join for a refresher on your institution’s obligation, a review of pertinent cases, and a summary of implications for your work with students, faculty, and site supervisors.

Past

The implementation of a variety of assistive technology tools is becoming a more frequently used method of providing accommodations for students. However, challenges around getting students to engage with, buy-into, and have sustained use of these tools is frequently discussed and asked about. During this webinar, differing levels of student technology engagement will be discussed, as well as ideas and strategies to help students understand and embrace the positive ways technology can support them in their academics.

Are you doing an ATE project in which you train teachers on content, with the expectation that they will teach it in their classrooms Have you and your evaluator been wondering how you can learn about the impact of your project? Need help to get that done? Then the FAS4ATE2 project may be for you!

Learn about how this project can help you improve your ability to document impacts across your professional development project at the recruitment webinar. The FAS4ATE2 team will discuss the project and its benefits to participants, including tailored resources and training with international experts.

Places in the project are limited, so come along to the webinar, get your questions answered, and learn how to apply!

Employers demand strong employability skills, and their demand for these skills is increasing. Many technician educators find it challenging to engage in developing these skills. Join presenters as they discuss some tools and techniques that their research has identified. 

Participants will receive a downloadable handbook with tools and techniques for educators and employers called Working Stronger, Working Smarter.
