ONL: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 Sabrina Meyer, Assistant Director, Human Resources at 527-4821 or email at smeyer@santarosa.edu.

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.

ONL: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.

Free NISOD Webinar

With the signing of Democracy’s College, a Call to Action promoting the development and implementation of policies, practices, and institutional cultures that will produce 50 percent more students with high-quality degrees and certificates by 2020, community colleges must not only continue to ensure access, but also ensure that students are succeeding and completing. What does all this mean? And, perhaps more importantly—how and where does a college begin? Through national initiatives such as Achieving the Dream, one practice that is demonstrating proven results is the requirement that new students take a student success course. Tune in and listen to the Paris Junior College story, why they decided to adopt this idea (implementing a student success course), how they designed a student success course, and finally, the results from its implementation.

ONL: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.

Mohammed ibn Musa al-Khwarizimi was a hugely important mathematician and scientist from the early Islamic period (second millennium AD).  His influence on shaping of modern mathematical ideas is so important to our mathematical thinking that the word algebra, which was taken from the title of his original textbook, and algorithm, which is a corruption of the name “al-Khwarizimi” have become words that are commonly used today.  Dean Gooch, mathematics instructor at SRJC, will trace the history of Mohammed ibn Musa’s work, discuss the probable origin of his mathematical and scientific knowledge, and explain the impact of his work on modern mathematics.

Building Safety Coordinator/Area Safety Coordinator Workshops

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WORKSHOPS

For the purposes of emergency preparedness and response it is helpful to view the District on a building by building level. Each building has occupants, who must rely on one another in the event of an emergency, and each building is comprised of one or more areas where occupants are organized based on like purpose, physical space, or other functional or operational reason. This arrangement can be used to create an efficient organizational structure for emergency preparedness and response. To do this, each building needs one representative to serve as the Building Safety Coordinator, and each area needs at least one person to serve as an Area Safety Coordinator.

In the near future the District will be recruiting people to fill these important positions. The workshops below will introduce the various roles and responsibilities, and will serve as a kick-off for other emergency preparedness events to follow.

Below is a link to the District’s Emergency Preparedness Handbook. Please take the time to review this handbook and think about emergency preparedness.

Building Safety Coordinator/Area Safety Coordinator Workshops

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WORKSHOPS

For the purposes of emergency preparedness and response it is helpful to view the District on a building by building level. Each building has occupants, who must rely on one another in the event of an emergency, and each building is comprised of one or more areas where occupants are organized based on like purpose, physical space, or other functional or operational reason. This arrangement can be used to create an efficient organizational structure for emergency preparedness and response. To do this, each building needs one representative to serve as the Building Safety Coordinator, and each area needs at least one person to serve as an Area Safety Coordinator.

In the near future the District will be recruiting people to fill these important positions. The workshops below will introduce the various roles and responsibilities, and will serve as a kick-off for other emergency preparedness events to follow.

Below is a link to the District’s Emergency Preparedness Handbook. Please take the time to review this handbook and think about emergency preparedness.

Rising from Tahrir: A Humanistic Take on the Egyptian Revolution
Hoda Rashad

ARTS AND LECTURES EVENT

In any historic event, dramatic things happen. But a chronology of events never tells us what it was like to be there. What was it like for the mothers, the writers, the activists, the Muslim Brotherhood and others? Hoda Rashad will attempt to open a window into the unique lives, histories, opinions and actions that collided to define a new Egypt. She will share the experiences of 10 very different Egyptians representing different entities and schools of thought, compiled from over 40 hours of recorded conversations, offering a deeper sense of the root causes and inner workings of the Egyptian revolution.

Hoda Rashad has a Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Eastern Studies and a Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. During the revolution, Rashad was involved with people at the forefront of the protests. During the days of the occupation of Tahrir (Liberation) Square, she wrote a non-political blog under the pseudonym Salma Mokadem, reporting on the dramatic events that were taking place as they occurred.

She began writing a book shortly after President Mubarak abdicated his presidency in February of 2011. Her book, Rising From Tahrir, is currently available on Amazon.com.

Building Emergency Plan Workshops

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS WORKSHOPS

One of the main roles of the Building Safety Coordinators and Area Safety Coordinators is to work together to create and update a Building Emergency Plan (BEP) for their specific situation. Every building is unique and thus every building needs a roadmap for how to deal with emergencies. The BEP takes the general information of the Emergency Preparedness Handbook and makes it real by assigning specific roles and responsibilities as well as creating building specific procedures for emergency response and recovery.

Below is a link to the District’s Emergency Preparedness Handbook. Please take the time to review this handbook and think about emergency preparedness.

The Mayan Doomsday: Don’t Worry About It!

Rick Luttmann

ARTS AND LECTURES EVENT

Rick Luttmann, PhD, Professor of Mathematics at Sonoma State University, will discuss the elaborate Mayan calendar system. The Mayans were the most advanced civilization in the Western Hemisphere, but went into precipitous decline around 1000 CE. They had very advanced science, mathematics, and astronomy. Their calendar involved overlapping cycles, and they created elaborate almanacs -- for example, to guide plantings and to predict the motions of Venus. Contrary to popular belief, they did not predict that the world will end on 23 December 2012. That is just the end of one great 5,200-year cycle and the beginning of another.

ARTS AND LECTURES EVENT

A - Trouble in Mind
By Alice Childress, Directed by John Shillington
Recommended for age 14 and above.

Written early in the Civil Rights era by one of the first African-American women to gain national prominence as a playwright, this nearly forgotten theatrical gem shines once more. Delightful and compelling, Alice Childress's comedy-drama takes place as rehearsals begin for a controversial new Broadway play. At its heart is a spirited actress who begins to question both her stereotypical casting and the hidden prejudices held by those with whom she works.

04:AL:F Terror the Night: PTSD Nightmares and Their Treatment
Stanley Krippner

ARTS AND LECTURES EVENT

About 20% of combat veterans return to the United States with a serious condition known as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. One of the most severe symptoms of PTSD is recurring nightmares that are so serious that they interfere with sleep and the veteran's daily functioning. However, there are a number of effective therapies for PTSD nightmares that involve exercises and "homework assignments" that allow veterans and other PTSD survivors (who have been abused, raped, physically injured, or bullied) to gain control over their terrifying nighttime dreams as well as their daytime life activities.

Professor Krippner has published two books on PTSD and presented on the topic innumerable times. He is a distinguished professor in the field of consciousness studies at Saybrook University with more than 20 books and several hundred other publications to his name. He has previously presented in the A & L lecture series.
