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.
