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 Keenan SafeCollegs, 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: 

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.

ONL: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.

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.

POD:01 - 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.

Presenter(s): Mary Kay Rudolph & Ricardo Navarrette

As many of you are aware, the College has been working on a Strategic Enrollment Management Plan that will restore access and opportunity for our community and potentially increase the District’s apportionment revenue. The severe reductions to the class schedule and support services in the depths of the recession affected our community and our students dramatically. As we begin to restore our schedules and resources for students, it is critical that we reach out to our communities to let them know of the opportunities available to them. We are particularly interested in strategies to communicate with the Latino Community and reentering adults. In addition, we need to promote our online offerings along with those offered at our different campuses and sites. A Strategic Enrollment Management Task Force appointed by the President, started the planning process of looking at past and present enrollment patterns, gathering data (analytics), and doing research into best practices across the nation. That group has drafted a preliminary document now ready to be shared with all constituent groups for direction, input and prioritization.
