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

Spring semester regular meetings start on January 19!

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.

51:AA - The End - A Talk about the End of Life in the Universe
Dr. Chris Impey, with a special appearance by
Lynda Williams, The Physics Chanteuse


With a musical subtext, this talk explores endings, from the proximate to the distant. Humans are unlikely to be exempt from the extinction that has been the fate of all species found on Earth, but we hope that it will not be by our own hand. Eventually, whatever life is found on Earth will be faced with the decay of the biosphere and the death of the Sun. On even longer timescales, the lights will go out in the cosmos as all stars are extinguished. The final curtain comes with the evaporation of black holes and the decay of space-time itself. Endings is a heavy topic, but in this presentation they are handled lightly and with a dose of humor.

Free admission.

So you have a PowerPoint presentation and you want to share it with your class online.
