Join ATE Central for a FREE Sustainability Webinar: Building Partnerships
Apr 7, 2015

Join Nancy Maron, Program Director of Sustainability and Scholarly Communications at ITHAKA S&R, and Rachael Bower, Director and PI of ATE Central, for the final webinar in our spring series focusing on building partnerships. Partnerships may take many forms, from an informal collaboration among peers, to a highly structured transaction between organizations. They can offer an efficient way to punch far above your weight… or end up not delivering quite as much as planned.  For ATE projects and centers, industry partners in particular, can play a key role.  Join ITHAKA S&R and ATE Central to learn about the many shapes partnerships can take, hear examples of successful partnerships from the ATE community, and learn what to look out for when seeking to establish partnerships of your own.   We have some best practices to share with you about building partnerships, and we want to hear from you, too - we’d love to share your stories during the webinar! The webinar will be on Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 at 2:00pm Eastern, and will run for 90 minutes. Sign up here: http://www.matecnetworks.org/webreg/ate_central.php

Welcome to the New ATE Central!!
Mar 20, 2015

After months of hard work the ATE Central team is pleased to present our new website!  Highlights include more information about the archiving servicesustainability support, and the upcoming social media and technology survey.  We hope you'll take a look through the site and let us know what you think – we'd love to hear from you about the content as well as the look and feel.

We'll be doing usability testing on the site (as we always do when making major changes to the site) at the American Association of Community Colleges Convention coming up in April in San Antonio.  If you're attending and would like to give us some feedback in person (and join us for cookies and coffee) we'd love to set up a time to get together with you.  You'll learn more about ATE Central and gain some insight into the usability testing process that may be useful in your own work!  To set up a time on April 19th or 20th, please email us at info@atecentral.net.

Join ATE Central for a FREE Sustainability Webinar: Understanding and Recruiting Your Audience
Mar 9, 2015

Join Nancy Maron, Program Director of Sustainability and Scholarly Communications at ITHAKA S&R, and Rachael Bower, Director and PI of ATE Central, for the second webinar in our spring series. Finding, recruiting and growing the “audience” for your work is a topic members of the ATE community have identified as absolutely critical to ongoing success. For some, this might mean recruiting students to enroll in courses or apply for internships. For others, this may mean convincing instructors and administrators that the curriculum that has been developed is something they should use too. We have some best practices to share with you about understanding and growing your audience, and we want to hear from you, too - we’d love to have some of you share them during the webinar!  The webinar will be on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 2:00pm Eastern, and will run for 90 minutes.  Sign up HERE

The Changing Face of Undergraduate Biology Education
Mar 3, 2015

Founded in 1848, The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), is the largest general scientific society in the world. The organization engages in a range of science-related activities, including the publication of the peer-reviewed journal Science, which boasts an estimated readership of around one million. This report, which is available for free PDF download, outlines the AAAS’s suggestions for jump-starting undergraduate biology education. The ideas focus on cultivating biological literacy, a student-centered approach to the curriculum, what the process of preparing campuses for upcoming challenges will entail, and the unity of purpose that will be necessary to accomplish the next steps in creating excellent undergraduate biology education. Originally published in 2009, the report still rings true today.

Bioscience Fellowships for Community College Instructors in June
Feb 23, 2015

Community College instructors with an interest in the commercial applications of Bioscience will find much to admire in the Bioscience Industrial Fellowship Project (BIFP). This National Science Foundation-sponsored professional development opportunity provides fellowships for ten high-impact instructors from anywhere in the country to come to North Carolina for a month of training in June 2015. During that time, BIFP fellows will engage in boot camps at three community colleges around the state, in which they will gain hands-on lab experience. They will also shadow workers in twelve different industrial/university hosting facilities. For more information, interested instructors may click here for a six minute video overview of the program. Applications can be found here.

Leveraging Grants for Technical Help
Feb 16, 2015

Community colleges have been using multiple federal grants to build programs for many years. But collaborative efforts between five ATE centers and the Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants are a fresh approach with big implications for both programs. The Community College Daily and American Association of Community Colleges published an article discussing the partnership. For the article click here.

NSF's 2015 Budget Passes
Feb 16, 2015

Congress has approved the 2015 NSF budget - a $7.344 billion allotment which represents a 2.4% increase over 2014 monies. Jeffrey Mervis provides a good overview in his recent article on the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Science Magazine website. Of particular interest to the ATE community, the NSF's educational directorate came away with approximately an extra $20 million, to be spent on undergraduate STEM programs and an overhaul of science-oriented graduate programs.

Women in the Labor Force: A Databook
Feb 16, 2015

The Bureau of Labor Statistics' report, Women in the Labor Force: A Datebook, which was published in December 2014, is now available here. The report covers such areas as demographic characteristics, educational attainment, occupation and industry, earnings, hours of work, and other interesting comparisons of women in the workforce in 2013 compared to previous years. For ATE projects and centers interested in drawing in more women, the National Institute for Women in Trades, Technology, and Science is always a useful resource.
