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 Karen Furukawa, VP of Human Resources and District Compliance Officer at 527-4302 or email at kfurukawa-schlereth@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.

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.

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.

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
Leader: Marie Truman

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.

Weight Watchers has revamped their program for 2011 with any eye to metabolism and nutrition. We invite you to attend the first meeting on Tuesday, January 18, 2011 at noon in the Race Conference room on the 3rd floor (Room 4061, facing the quad) to find out all about it.

All are welcome! Fee applies: 17 weeks for $204 which includes etools; can be paid in 3 installments. Contact Micca Gray for more information: 527-4552.

January 28, 29, February 2, 3, 4, 5 at 8:00 PM
February 5, 6 at 2:00 PM

Like a haunting train whistle calling in the distance, this theatrical folk tale takes us back to the early days of radio when a single voice could hold an audience spellbound across “the magic of the ether.” Shuttling effortlessly between 1895 and 1923, the play weaves together the homespun yarns of an itinerant radio storyteller named Davey Quinn and his boyhood escapades with a spunky blind girl named Frankie. Imaginatively staged as an old-time broadcast complete with live bluegrass music, this is a timeless love story sure to charm even the most cynical heart.

Recommended for age 12 and above.

March 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19 at 8:00 PM
March 19, 20 at 2:00 PM

Sparkling with wit and dripping in quotable gems, this exquisite comedy of manners is one of the crown jewels of British theatre. Armed with ridiculously grand characters, Oscar Wilde’s delightfully wicked satire takes aim at the pretenses and posturing of society as it follows the misadventures of two earnest young bachelors who both pretend to be named “Ernest” in order to win the hearts of two “Ernest-obsessed” young ladies. In the end a surprising truth is revealed, but according to Wilde, “The truth is rarely pure and never simple!

This extraordinary rock opera forever changed the world of musical theatre when it exploded onto Broadway in 1971. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, its powerful explorations of faith in a troubled world and the potent phenomenon of celebrity resonate even more strongly today. Dramatizing the final seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth with an edgy, contemporary approach, this first professional collaboration by a now-legendary team features a vibrant rock score, including chart-topping hits like “Superstar” and “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”

04:AL:P - Rock Poster Art from the San Francisco Ballroom Era and Beyond

San Francisco in the 1960s produced many lasting cultural innovations, among them a renaissance of creativity in the graphic arts centered around the promotion of rock music.  Drawing upon and extending such nineteenth and turn of the century influences as French painter and illustrator Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Czechoslovakian Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, Austrian symbolist Gustav Klimt, and the lettering style of Vienna Secessionist Alfred Roller, the poster artists of the 1960s San Francisco ballroom scene revolutionized the graphic arts, blurring the boundaries between pictorial image and text, between the disposable and the collectible, and between commercial and fine art.  This exhibition features the work of several of the most influential of the San Francisco rock poster artists, all with strong ties to the Redwood Empire: Lee Conklin, Stanley Mouse, Victor Moscoso, and David Singer.

04:AL:Q - Films, Shamans & Shamanic Experiences
Jurgen Kremer

How have the ways in which shamans have been portrayed in films changed through the past decades? Initially shamans were seen as malevolent “witch doctors,” but this perspective shifted once native people gained more respect both in academia and in the mainstream American culture, according to Jurgen Kremer, SRJC behavioral sciences instructor. Currently, shamans and shamanic experiences are almost always portrayed in positive ways, although still with an exotic spin and a number of movies have now been created by Indigenous peoples themselves. To illustrate central issues in the depiction of shamans and the psychology of shamanism, sequences from several films will be shown.

04:AL:R - The Divine Proportion – A Mathematician Looks at the Golden Ratio
John Martin

Over the years many people have ascribed mystical properties to the number known as the Golden Ratio. It has been claimed that this number played a role in the building of the Great Pyramid of Cheops and in the art of some of the masters. References to the Golden Ratio have appeared in recent fiction (The Da Vinci Code) and on television shows (Numb3rs, Nip/Tuck). In this presentation, John Martin, SRJC mathematics instructor, will explore the legend and lore surrounding the Golden Ratio as well as the mathematics behind it. A mathematics instructor at SRJC since 1981, Martin has a BA in math from Humboldt State and an MA in math from USC.

In a special issue of the journal ReVision, leading ecopsychologists took the next step, demonstrating how to foster ecological sensitivity, and not merely react to environmental crises. Panelists will discuss how to become more intimate with nature in a range of settings—from semester-long classes in an urban university, to week-long wilderness retreats, to fleeting experiences encountering nature in one’s own backyard. Panelists include Sam Mickey, adjunct faculty member at USF and the Pacifica Graduate Institute and the web content manager and newsletter editor for the Forum on Religion and Ecology, and Michal Fire, who worked for over six years as a professional wilderness guide and educator in the Himalayas and U.S.

A Conversation with Jean Hegland


When a writer gets an idea for a novel, how does she decide what themes she wants to explore, and what kinds of characters she wants to create? How does she manage to shape her story so that a reader will share her feelings about those characters and her attitudes towards the themes that matter so much to her? In other words, what does literary interpretation look like from a writer’s point of view? For insights into these questions and more, join us for a conversation with Jean Hegland, author of Into the Forest, the English Department’s Work of Literary Merit for Spring 2011.

02:EHS:I - Red Cross Certified CPR Training
Limited to 12 participants

WHY? Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency first aid procedure for a victim of cardiac arrest. It is part of the chain of survival, which includes early access to emergency medical services, early CPR, early defibrillation, and early advanced care. It is also performed as part of the choking protocol if all else has failed. It can be performed by trained laypersons or by health care or emergency response professionals.

WHAT? Training complements adult learning styles with hands-on practice and real-life scenarios while take-away materials serve as excellent refresher tools after training is complete. This comprehensive course meets training guidelines for CPR programs established by the state and federal OSHA.

TOPICS:  

American Red Cross adult CPR training complements a variety of learning styles with hands-on practice and real-life scenarios. Our take-away materials are designed for use both in the course and outside the classroom as reference tools.

Combining lecture, video demonstrations and hands-on manikin training, this course teaches participants to:

  • Call and work with EMS
  • Perform CPR and care for breathing and cardiac emergencies
  • Avoid bloodborne pathogens exposure

To register for this training, call 527-4803, or email Toni Chase at tchase@santarosa.edu,

04:AL:P - Rock Poster Art from the San Francisco Ballroom Era and Beyond
Gallery Talk & Reception

Join us for an informal conversation with the artists, followed by a reception.

San Francisco in the 1960s produced many lasting cultural innovations, among them a renaissance of creativity in the graphic arts centered around the promotion of rock music.  Drawing upon and extending such nineteenth and turn of the century influences as French painter and illustrator Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Czechoslovakian Art Nouveau painter Alphonse Mucha, Austrian symbolist Gustav Klimt, and the lettering style of Vienna Secessionist Alfred Roller, the poster artists of the 1960s San Francisco ballroom scene revolutionized the graphic arts, blurring the boundaries between pictorial image and text, between the disposable and the collectible, and between commercial and fine art.  This exhibition features the work of several of the most influential of the San Francisco rock poster artists, all with strong ties to the Redwood Empire: Lee Conklin, Stanley Mouse, Victor Moscoso, and David Singer.

04:AL:Z3 - Why I Ride: Low and Slow
Debra Koffler and Veronica Majano

Debra Koffler and Veronica Majano will discuss and show their film which follows the story of a group of young Latinos from the Mission District who embodied a unique artistic expression and grassroots community empowerment. In the 1980s, San Francisco’s Mission district streets were packed on weekends with a parade of cars sporting candy-apple paint and shiny chrome that would cruise up and down Mission Street from 16th to Geneva. Sidewalks were filled with young Latinos and other spectators who came for the weekend ritual to gather, socialize, and dance to oldies. These original lowriders recall the history of street culture and low-riding in the Mission when anti–low-rider traffic laws, police aggression, and stereotypes changed the dynamics of the community.
