AA:00A CATE Workshop Series

CATE, the Center for Advanced Technology in Education, offers a series of training workshops related to SRJC's "Sisters" courseware application for online classes and traditional classes with online content. Because sessions are may be over-enrolled, they are subject to cancellation or postponement; please be sure to reserve your place in advance.

The workshops are arranged so that the earliest ones cover the easiest and most commonly used modules, while the later workshops cover the more advanced modules. For example, almost everyone can easily understand and utilize personal homepages, which are covered in the first workshop. On the other hand, class message boards and gradebooks are more sophisticated and not utilized by as many instructors, so they're not covered until the final two workshops.

Each workshop also builds on material presented in the previous sessions, so they need to be taken in the designated sequence.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED - contact Bill Stone.

AA:10 Side By Side - A Journey with Depression
Brian Wetzel , Front Porch Spirit

Brian Wetzel was a professional stand-up comedian whose career and personal life were absorbed by his struggle with clinical depression. Bringing his sense of humor and experiences together, Brian takes his audience on a unique journey of laughter, painful truth, and finally, hope. By walking side by side with the affliction, he finds a way to keep surviving, keep learning, and keep living.

For faculty who work with students with disabilities, this presentation provides insight into the world of depression from the sufferer’s perspective.  Understanding depression assists faculty in dealing with students who suffer from depression as well as providing a better understanding for working with staff and colleagues who suffer from depression.

AA:07A Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Faculty Web Conference
Charmaine P. Clowney, Director of Diversity and Equal Opportunity, Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education
Sponsored by SRJC District Compliance Office

While the diversity of undergraduate student populations is steadily increasing, faculty diversity continues to lag behind, especially in fields such as engineering and science. Research indicates that a diverse faculty directly contributes to educational quality and excellence, better prepares students to live and work in an increasingly global, pluralistic society and exposes students to a broader range of scholarly perspectives. Achieving faculty diversity, however, remains a significant challenge. Join us to explore hiring and retaining underrepresented groups in the Best Practices in Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Faculty web conference.

AA:03 Retention Seminar Series
Sponsored by: StEP Committee
Co-facilitators:
Kimberlee Messina, Academic Senate President
Diane Larsen, Chair Counseling Department
KC Greaney, Director of Institutional Research

What can we do as instructors, student support professionals and staff to help students meet their short and long term educational goals?  How can we help SRJC work better for students, so they can stay in school and get the most out of their educational experience?  This seminar, a collaborative effort between academic affairs, student services, institutional research, and the Strategic Enrollment Planning (StEP) Committee, will examine and discuss retention theories and how they might be utilized to better serve students at SRJC.  The co-facilitators of the seminar intend to format the series to be like a graduate seminar, with discussion of common readings and active participation by all attendees.   We will begin with a literature review of retention theory, specifically as applied to community colleges, and we will include specific topics and readings chosen by participants at subsequent meetings.  The discussion will evolve over the six seminars, with the direction being set collaboratively by the participants.  We ask that participants commit to attend the entire series of six seminars (which will fulfill the annual flex obligation for full-time faculty).  As a result of seminar discussions, we expect participants to collectively draft a list of suggested changes and strategies for improving retention at SRJC.  The results will be shared with appropriate groups throughout the district.

Stair Chair, Santa Rosa Campus
Mike Ceser, Environmental Health & Safety

SRJC's District Police  Department recently adopted a policy on the use of stair chairs on both  campuses that will be utilized to safely evacuate disabled students and  employees in the event of an emergency. Should a disaster occur that shuts  down the use of elevators, a group of trained SRJC personnel will be  available to assist disabled persons by utilizing stair chairs to ensure the  safe evacuation from upper to lower building levels. To enhance the safety of disabled  persons during an emergency, SRJC's Environmental Health & Safety  (EH&S) Department will conduct training for first responders, including  police, custodians, faculty and interested disabled  persons. Once trained, the cadre  of trained emergency transport staff will be notified by the District Police  in the event of an emergency that requires moving disabled persons from  buildings using stairs.

AA:30 CATE Workshop Series

CATE, the Center for Advanced Technology in Education, offers a series of training workshops related to SRJC's "Sisters" courseware application for online classes and traditional classes with online content. Because sessions are may be over-enrolled, they are subject to cancellation or postponement; please be sure to reserve your place in advance.

The workshops are arranged so that the earliest ones cover the easiest and most commonly used modules, while the later workshops cover the more advanced modules. For example, almost everyone can easily understand and utilize personal homepages, which are covered in the first workshop. On the other hand, class message boards and gradebooks are more sophisticated and not utilized by as many instructors, so they're not covered until the final two workshops.

Each workshop also builds on material presented in the previous sessions, so they need to be taken in the designated sequence.
