AO:03 Sexual Harassment Training for Supervisors

Sexual harassment is one of the major employee complaints filed with state and federal agencies. Besides the threat of potential liability, Santa Rosa Junior College is committed to providing a workplace free of ALL forms of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. 

Even though many employers like Santa Rosa Junior College have a "zero tolerance" policy for any form of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, the courts consistently find that a policy alone is not enough to prevent bad conduct. California now mandates that the most effective way to accomplish prevention is through training. 

Santa Rosa Junior College has arranged for online training from LawRoom, the premier web-based employment law service. The following course will train managers to recognize harassment and discrimination, handle complaints, and avoid retaliation in related workplace situations: 

Course 310: Supervisor Anti-Harassment (CA-AB1825)

If you are required to complete the course, you will receive an invitation by email that briefly describes the course and its completion date. The email invitation will provide brief instructions on accessing the course, along with your ID and Password.

If you have any questions, please contact Charles Prickett, District Compliance Officer at 527-4303 or email at cprickett@santarosa.edu.

AO:13 - Creating Accessible PowerPoint Presentations for Online Use
Corrine Haverinen

So you have a PowerPoint presentation and you want to share it with your class online. Or maybe you have a PowerPoint presentation from a face-to-face class that you are now developing for online delivery. There are various ways to deliver the content of your PowerPoint file online to your class, each with it's own issues and with various levels of accessibilty.

This tutorial will look at various options for converting PowerPoint presentations to online versions and discuss the accessibility issues of each. Then we will look at an export option using LecShare for creating HTML versions of PowerPoint files.

AO:14 - Creating Accessible PDFs for Online Use
Corrine Haverinen

HTML pages are the best way to deliver content online because they are the easiest format for making content accessible to everyone including the sight impaired. PDFs offer an easy way to make your documents deliverable and readable over the internet, but making them accessible to the sight impaired offers a few more challenges than HTML pages.

PDFs are a better choice than Word documents because they will not require the viewer to purchase a program to read the file and PDFs have more accessibility features than Word files do.

When using PDFs for required content in an online class, you will need to make sure that they are accessible to disabled students. The online version of a workshop on creating accessible PDFs given by the PC trainers from SRJC's Academic Computing department is at the link provided below.

AO:06 - Issues in Adolescent Development
Jeanie Harmon, Child Development

Adolescence, once a relatively short period in the course of development, has now extended from the teens into the twenties for many youth in America. Much of our student population, particularly those ages 18-22, display characteristics that reflect an extended adolescence. Students are living at home with parents for longer periods of time, taking longer to achieve independence and self-sufficiency, are less familiar with the demands of the work world and have a harder time setting and achieving goals. How do we support the needs of these students, set appropriate expectations and facilitate the skills needed for competence and self-sufficiency? In this session, we will discuss characteristics of late adolescent development and practical strategies for supporting the needs of students, ages 18-22 in the college-learning environment.

27:AA - Weight Watchers at Work

Fall semester regular meetings start on September 21!

Studies have shown that participation in the Weight Watchers program results in significant improvements in weight loss, activity levels, and quality of life. Combine over 45 years of expertise, a supportive community, and a trained Leader who’s lost weight in meetings too, and the result is a proven, time-tested way of losing weight.

What happens at a meeting? You’ll get important information from the weeks’s weight loss topic and a confidential weigh-in each week to keep you on track. It’s not like an office or PTA meeting: the Leader is someone who’s been through the process of weight loss and succeeded. Meetings are an opportunity to get expert advice, share helpful strategies - or just listen and find motivation. It’s a little more than a half hour out of your week, and it’s worth it.

David Bacon

This presentation will analyze the political
economy of migration. It will begin by examining
the economic, political and social reasons for the
displacement of communities in developing countries, especially Mexico. It will highlight the role
played by trade agreements and structural adjustment policies. It will then discuss the use of U.S. immigration policy to criminalize migrants, and to provide a labor supply for employers. It will conclude by examining alternative policies that would reinforce the human rights of migrants, reduce the pressure for displacement, and a common ground among working people based on rights and jobs.

Stagger Lee? He has gone by all these names in the
ballad that has kept his exploits before us for over
a century. Delving into a subculture of St. Louis
known as “Deep Morgan,” Cecil Brown emerges
with the facts behind the legend to unfold the
mystery of Stack Lee and the incident that led
to murder in 1895.

31:AA - Illustrated Lecture on Archaeology
Dr. Christine Hastorf

Beer brewing and drinking are old traditions. In fact some archaeologists thing that Near Eastern cereals were domesticated due to the desire to have the grain for beer, rather than the traditional belief for bread. Even if this is not strictly true, we do have growing evidence from around the world of early beer brewing in the archaeological record. In fact, biologists tell us that humans co-evolved with ethanol, making the daily glass of wine part of our hominid anchestry! Some of these examples from Egypt and Peru will be presented here to illustrate how ubiquitous such a tradition has been.

Faculty members from Behavioral Sciences, Art, Art History, Ethnic Studies, International Studies, and Cultural Geography could use the information presented as an update on the significance of the fermentation of foods during the rise of civilization and how it relates to the human condition.

04:AL:H - Psychological Suffering - Diagnosis and Social Responsibility
Jurgen Werner Kremer, PhD

A soldier returns from war in Iraq or Afghanistan and suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome. The burden of healing lies with the individual soldier. In her novel Ceremony, Leslie Marmon Silko describes an indigenous alternative to treating post-traumatic stress syndrome: healing by way of initiation or rite of passage. Western psychology and psychiatry operate within an individualistic paradigm that is notably different from indigenous communal paradigms. What does the understanding of psychological suffering in indigenous cultures have to contribute to our healing efforts? How can ritual and trance be used to enlarge healing efforts? Join Jurgen Kremer, PhD, Behavioral Science instructor at SRJC, as he explores the diagnosis and social responsibility of psychological suffering.

This will be an exciting community forum on the media in the North Bay area.

There is no doubt that News is big business. Those who can afford to create it, can also spin it and feed it to anyone who is listening. The days of small independent newspapers, radio stations, and TV stations are quickly dissappearing. What we consume from mainstream media is controlled by a very small group of people who decide what is newsworthy and what is not.

22:AA:E - A Community Organizer’s Tale:  People and Power in San Francisco
Mike Miller

For more than three decades, Mike Miller has been one of the leading lights of community organizing in the United States.  While the results of successful organizing campaigns get media coverage, the backstage hard work – set into a larger social and historical context – rarely do. This book is therefore an important contribution to both academics interested in the topic of grassroots mobilization, and to those “in the experience” who will benefit from vivid and textured accounts of strategies that have worked, and failed.
