During the ten-day training seminar, educators will be exposed to wet laboratory techniques, the concept of quality control, how regulatory agencies influence laboratory environments, and hands-on training with state-of-the-art analytical equipment. Attendees will be presented an array of laboratory activities that will include a focus on forensics, environmental, pharmaceutical, food/beverage, and cosmetic industries.  Teaching strategies will also be shared to help you enhance the educational experience you are providing to your own students.

Recent studies have shown that the opportunity gap persists for students of color in community colleges. Increasingly, students of color are making community colleges their first choice in higher education to seek certification, marketable job skills, or a degree; however, they are not completing their education at the same rate as their White counterparts. While any number of factors may contribute to this gap, we cannot rule out implicit bias as a factor. Biases not only have a negative impact on students’ self-esteem, they can reduce students’ will to try, resulting in inequitable outcomes. This webinar paints a picture of what implicit bias looks like in the classroom and provides strategies for reducing biases that inevitably impact students’ success.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or will be able to:

  • Have a clearer understanding of what implicit bias is and the factors that contribute to it.
  • Understand how to recognize implicit bias in ourselves and others.
  • Have strategies for preventing and interrupting bias in the classroom.

The Ethical Hacking workshop is an in-depth and comprehensive course that delves into the common tactics employed by hackers to breach systems. From SQL injection and spear phishing to buffer overflows, this workshop equips you with the knowledge and skills needed to defend against these attacks. By immersing you in the hacker mindset, you will gain a better understanding of how to anticipate and protect against potential threats.

This workshop goes beyond the narrow focus of specific vendors, technologies or equipment and emphasizes on a holistic security mindset. With live demonstrations of these techniques, you will gain hands-on experience in creating, packaging, and deploying malware in a realistic network environment. This workshop is designed to help attendees develop a deeper understanding of the hacker's perspective and methodology, and to empower them to secure their systems more effectively.

This course is intended to introduce community college instructors to the concepts of IoT, the Internet of Things, embedded systems, and cybersecurity best practices through a series of hands-on projects built around Arduino microcontrollers, an array of electronic components, sensors, and actuators, and computer programming.

This workshop is designed to help instructors gain an understanding and proficiency in the technologies centered around the Internet of Things, and how to teach these concepts. Students will explore Microsoft micro:bit as an alternative to the Arduino microcontroller and create a project either based on one of those discussed in class or a project of your own design.

The workshop will be delivered virtually through Zoom and Canvas. Students will be asked to complete several Arduino and Microsoft micro:bit projects, some of which will be completed virtually with the group. Additionally, the students will complete the review questions and quizzes after each project. Content covered during this course will prepare you for the Arduino Fundamentals Certification Exam.

Participants in this workshop will take entry and exit surveys to assess their prior and achieved knowledge. These surveys will include:

  • Coding knowledge and experience
  • Electronics knowledge and experience
  • Tinkercad knowledge and experience
