Teaching STEM: an Interactive Multidisciplinary Approach
Join Peter and a group of faculty as they demonstrate an interactive multidisciplinary approach to teaching STEM. We all know these disciplines are related, but we often fall back into our area of expertise and fail to show students the interrelatedness of STEM. Various faculty will discuss, and everyone will participate in, the processes leading up to and including fermentation as an example of how to link water chemistry, plant sciences, biology, chemistry, physics, microbiology, mathematics, welding, engineering and culinary arts.

Blood Borne Pathogen Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a standard (Section 5193 of Title 8 of California Code of Regulations) that provides methods to reduce your risk of exposure to bloodborne pathogens.  The standard covers employees who can reasonably anticipate contact with blood or other potentially infectious materials as a result of performing their assigned job duties.  Training is required initially upon hire and annually thereafter.  This training is introductory in nature and designed to provide a basic understanding of bloodborne pathogens, workplace transmissions, exposure control plan, standard precautions, reducing risk, etc.  Select one of two sessions times offered

Using SOFIA to Analyze Student Success
SOFIA is a program planning tool that allows faculty to make more data–informed decisions regarding curriculum and presentation methods.  See a live demo of the new SOFIA (Student Outcomes for Faculty Inquiry and Analysis) faculty inquiry tool. Learn how SOFIA can answer your questions about student success. SOFIA allows faculty and other users to log in to a secure interface and run queries based on specific classes, sections, and other well-defined student cohorts (e.g, learning communities, EOPS students, DSPS, etc.).  Join us to see what SOFIA can do for you. Project supported by Title V, PRO and IT.

Why Pulling Your Belly in is Wrong
Discover how proper control of your core can alleviate muscle tension reduce spinal pain and improve movement quality and control. Many of us have heard “tighten your core” and “pull your belly button to your spine” when performing exercises. These longstanding techniques attempt to improve safety and performance by increasing function of the core. But is this correct? What is the core? What does the core do? Is my core doing what it should? This lecture will describe the core, what it is used for and how the fitness industry has missed the boat when it comes to proper use of your midsection.The staff will also offer facility tours and new program descriptions as part of a tour.

Growing Our Own Revenue
State revenue will always be insufficient to fund all the services Cabrillo is capable of delivering and that our community expects to receive from us. The Career Education and Economic Development (CEED) division is the arm of the college charged with generating revenue from other sources to support our mission. Come and hear how you can use Extension, Contract Education, and local and regional partnerships to bring new sources of funds, reduce expenses, sustain classes the state will no longer fund, reach new audiences, and provide new services.

College Climate and Analyzing Students’ Time and Effort (THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELED)
Four year universities offer students total immersion. Does Cabrillo foster a nurturing environment for college immersion? There are several centers on campus dedicated to fully support a student's academic improvement. Learn about our students, their profile, and their social and technological trends. Navigate among different maps in the county to understand more about our students’ needs and their interaction with the campus. The first part of this session will offer data from a longitudinal view of the last twelve years. We will then reflect on what level of engagement our students have and how that resonates in their academic performance. The second part of the session will focus on students who spend more time in our campus centers, and whether they are more likely to succeed as opposed to those who don’t access the centers. Join us to learn about the correlation between time and effort in the college and student outcomes.
