AA:01 CATE Workshop Series
Bill Stone

CATE, the Center for Advanced Technology in Education, offers a series of training workshops related to SRJC's "Sisters" courseware application for online classes and traditional classes with online content. Because sessions are may be over-enrolled, they are subject to cancellation or postponement; please be sure to reserve your place in advance.

The workshops are arranged so that the earliest ones cover the easiest and most commonly used modules, while the later workshops cover the more advanced modules. For example, almost everyone can easily understand and utilize personal homepages, which are covered in the first workshop. On the other hand, class message boards and gradebooks are more sophisticated and not utilized by as many instructors, so they're not covered until the final two workshops.

Each workshop also builds on material presented in the previous sessions, so they need to be taken in the designated sequence.

AA:14 Facin Up to Climate Change: The Impacts of Global Warming
Dr. Margaret Torn, UC Berkeley

Dr. Margaret Torn of Berkeley Lab's Earth Sciences Division warns that global warming is real, and we'd better prepare for it. Although her research has taken her to the steppes of Russia, the volcanoes of Hawaii, the tundra of Alaska, and the plains and mountains of the continental U.S., she reminds us that climate change starts at home: how global warming impacts local ecosystems will have dramatic effects for us all. A warming climate leads to melting glaciers, rising sea levels, and an increased risk of catastrophic fires, and a decrease in snowpack affects states like California which relies on snow melt for its water storage for the summer months.  Dr. Torn, who is also an associate adjunct professor at UC Berkeley, will discuss  current research on global change and the environmental impacts of human activities. Cosponsored by SRJC’s Environmental Forum.

This activity has been approved for Flex credit for selected departments (see list). All others may submit an Independent Flex Activities proposal for consideration.
