Whatcom Community College – Syre Hall237 W Kellogg RdBellinghamWA98226United States

Technology Alliance Groups of the Northwest (TAGNW) presents their annual summit on the Whatcom Community College campus. The theme this year is Strengthening Our Technology Community and will highlight both professional development and technical education with breakout tracks for business leadership, software/web developers, and IT/cybersecurity professionals. Activities will allow for networking, socializing, and additional discussion.

Explore how graphic storytelling can enable cybersecurity education, rather than training, and learn how both educators and employers can engage and assess learners at any stage with critical cyber concepts.

In this VBBL, Laurin Buchanan will discuss and demonstrate the use of Comic-BEE, a novel cybersecurity education technology designed to support the rapid creation of interactive, graphic stories -web comics- that align with cybersecurity curricular goals. By making choices on behalf of a character in the comic, readers experience the outcome of those choices –positive or negative– in a safe environment. These web comics can be used for education or evaluation (assessment) of diverse cybersecurity knowledge, skills and abilities. Join us to explore how graphic storytelling can enable cybersecurity education, rather than training, and learn how both educators and employers can engage and assess learners at any stage with critical cyber concepts.

Comic-BEE was awarded the Best Student Learning Aid in the 2018 Innovations in Cybersecurity Eeducation from National Cyberwatch Center.

The XR Symposium is a two day event that envelops the exciting and ever changing world of Immersive Technology. Many of the topics cover innovative approaches to AR/VR/MR (XR) simulations applications building and business. The research behind XR (Cross-Reality) in all its dynamic display, provides a glance into the training aspect for enterprise, and as well, gives way for hands-on demonstrations. Coastal Alabama CC AAS-Dynamic Reality Tech Program, through sessions and workshops, will illustrate the core competencies for the XR-based training simulations, findings on the state of the industry, tools and methodology. Additionally, information on the program of the IEEEVRAR - Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Working Group and TAPPI industry standards. With the support of the National Science Foundation, we aspire to demystify the training, building and training for this field and technology.

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!

This workshop will benefit winemakers, cellar workers, winery staff, and wine enthusiasts who seek a deeper understanding of these topics and their impact on a winery’s success. In addition, workshop attendees will be guided through sensory test methods to access perceived differences and preferences in wine.

Topics include: Welcome and Introduction to Tasting, White Sensory Standards, Red Sensory Standards, and Evaluating Palate Attributes: Alcohol, Acid, and Tannin Wine Defects, Descriptive Wine Analysis of White Wines, Descriptive Analysis of Red Wines, Laboratory Investigating, Wine Competition Methodology and Professional Wine Rating Systems. A certificate will be awarded after the completion of this workshop.

Biotech students at Los Angeles Mission College will be presenting their projects as posters at this event.

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. 

Impact evaluation can be a powerful way to assess the long-term or broader effects of a project. Attention to causal inference, which attributes change to the project and its activities, sets impact evaluation apart from other types of evaluation. Impact evaluation can support deeper learning and direction for project scaling and future sustainability.

This webinar is an introduction to impact evaluation and how it can be realistically implemented in ATE projects. ATE principal investigators, project and center staff, and evaluators who attend this webinar will learn:

  • the basic tenets of impact evaluation,
  • strategies for determining causal attribution, and
  • the resources needed to implement impact evaluation for your project
