Salt Lake Community College4600 South Redwood RoadSalt Lake CityUT84123U.S.

The Introductions to Nanotechnology and Nanotechnology Curriculum Materials 1 and 2 workshops that were held this spring gave participant educators the opportunity to remotely learn about nanotechnology workforce education from the NPDP Team using a live-stream technology approach. The NPDP Team is now opening up applications to the next phase of training, hands-on face to face laboratory experiences entitled NPDP Hands-On-Site Workshops. The purpose of these workshops is to enable educators who attend these experiences to enhance their understanding of this technology and further understand the laboratory experiences that NPDP partners are using within their nanotechnology workforce programs, leading to implementation of nanotechnology classroom experiences, nanotechnology courses or perhaps nanotechnology workforce programs at their home institutions.

Many of the learning materials educators use in the classroom (such as lecture handouts and the course syllabus) are self-created and understanding how to make them accessible to all students including those with disabilities is critical. The authoring tools used to create these materials often include options for adding accessibility into the content creation workflow, and standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provide guidance for how to do so.  The WCAG guidelines are written in technical language that can be confusing to even veteran developers. Fortunately, they can be distilled into four core principles, as captured by the acronym POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust), that define four qualities of an accessible user experience. Using the revision of a course syllabus as the context, this webinar, brought to you by the NSF funded AccessATE project and the National AEM Center at CAST,  will focus on practical tips and techniques based on the POUR principles you can implement right away to ensure your documents are accessible and work for all learners from the start, by design.

This mini-BIOMAN hands-on workshop builds upon the statistical concepts required for design of experiments (DOE), including hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and statistical models.

Participants will analyze data they collect from basic laboratory experiments involving volume measurement and cell lysis. This workshop will incorporate presentations from industry professionals in Southern California’s biotech hub and an industry site tour.

RCNET is partnering with the Decommissioning Strategy Forum for 3 days of professional development.  For years, RCNET and its partner colleges have focused on training nuclear technicians for commercial energy.  Now due to a breadth of reasons, colleges have had to adjust their nuclear programs to maintain enrollment.  This workshop will focus on three successful strategies and the accompanying RCNET resources to maintain and strengthen engineering technology programs (specifically nuclear programs):

1)  Broadening your nuclear energy program by expanding into similar nuclear environmental management and deconstruction and decommissioning fields.

2)  Broadening your nuclear energy program by expanding into similar energy fields such as substation, fossil generation, and alternative energy fields.

3) Outsourcing classes to accredited online programs.

In addition, this workshop will review some new RCNET resources to improve recruitment (of targeted demographics) and to improve teaching and learning (such as VR access to IRSC’s flow loop complete with human performance tasks).

The Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) Decommissioning Task Force and RCNET are both co-locating their meetings directly after Exchange Monitor's Decommissioning Strategy Forum (www.decommissioningstrategy.com).  The Forum is a great event to understand activities and opportunities in the area and RCNET is happy to announce that Exchange Monitor has offered a reduced registration fee for our members.

This free course is designed for EAST facilitators that want to learn enough about GIS to facilitate some quality projects. It is not designed for advanced users. Follow up and more advanced sessions are also offered. Registration is a first come, first served for this training session. Completing this registration does not guarantee you a spot. You will receive an email confirming your registration or placement on the wait list.
