Madison College honored for innovation in international education

College’s ‘Sustainable Development Network’ builds partnerships, promotes global STEM education

 MADISON, Wis. (Jan. 23, 2015)—The Institute of International Education has named Madison Area Technical College one of five recipients of its Andrew Heiskell Awards for Innovation in International Education. The awards honor outstanding initiatives in higher education among 1,400 member campuses in the global IIE network. Madison College is the only community college to be honored with this year’s Heiskell Award.

The Heiskell Awards showcase the most innovative and successful models among community colleges and baccalaureate institutions for campus internationalization, study abroad, and international partnership programs. Emphasis is placed on initiatives that remove institutional barriers and broaden the base of participation in study abroad and international teaching and learning on campus.

Madison College was recognized for leading the “Community College Sustainable Development Network,” a consortium of faculty and programming from 24 U.S. community colleges to build a network of study-abroad programs in the STEM disciplines – science, technology, engineering and math. To date, the network has developed 19 new study abroad opportunities including programs in engineering, renewable energy, sustainable architecture, sustainable construction, sustainable agriculture, tropical ecology, statistics, education, nursing, and dental service.

Geoff Bradshaw, director of MATC’s Center for International Education, says the Sustainable Development Network is a best-practice model that he hopes other campuses will replicate. “Collaborating with other schools to create faculty-led programs grounded in training and support enables more community colleges to offer study abroad programming for their students,” he said. “Though the Madison College-led network concentrates on STEM education, the same model can be applied to liberal studies and technical training, as well.”

Other campuses to receive this year’s Heiskell Award include Purdue University, Auburn University, Texas Christian University and State University of New York.


 

Founded in 1919, the non-profit Institute of International Education (IIE) is among the world’s largest and most experienced international education and training organizations It is best known for their role in managing the Fulbright Scholars Program for the U.S. Department of State. The IIE Heiskell Awards were named for the late Andrew Heiskell, a former chairman of Time Inc., a long-time member of the Executive Committee of IIE’s Board of Trustees and a renowned international and cultural philanthropist.

EPA’s Small Drinking Water Systems Webinar Series – Arsenic Removal

news-article

U.S. EPA:

Webinar on Research and Implementation of Arsenic Removal Technologies at Small Community Water Systems

In 2015, U.S. EPA’s Office of Research and Development and Office of Water will host monthly webinars to discuss various treatment technology topics for small community drinking water and wastewater systems.

U.S. EPA will use your registration information solely for this event. We will not share your information with any third party.

State and local officials across the Nation are faced with the challenges of effectively communicating information and overseeing training for small system owners and operators with a wide range of expertise, skills, and preferences for modes of communication.

To ensure water systems are in compliance with regulations enforced by EPA under the Safe Drinking Water Act, these officials need to stay up-to-date on treatment alternatives, regulations, health implications, and emerging contaminants. EPA is committed to helping state and local personnel, as well as small system personnel, to deliver high quality drinking water to their customers by providing information, training, and technical assistance.

Solar Workshop – The Transformative Change Initiative

news-article

Dear Clean Energy Colleague,

The Transformative Change Initiative, co-led Office of Community College Research and Leadership and The Collaboratory, working in partnership with the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) and the US Department of Energy, is pleased to invite you to a one-day invitation-only workshop in Baltimore, Maryland on February 18th, 2015.

Note: the deadline for hotel registration is the 20th of January.

With both residential and non-residential markets growing rapidly and continuous changes in solar technology, the need for high quality solar instruction has never been greater. This is reflected in the fact that many of the recipients of the Department of Labor’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training (TAACCCT) grants are using the funds to develop solar training. The purpose of this workshop is to build on and extend the ongoing Solar Instructor Training Network by building strong links to TAACCCT-funded instructors, and by discussing strategies for improving the ways that materials and insights about instructional strategies are shared. The group of approximately 20 people will include instructors actually building and delivering courses or course components on photovoltaics, business leaders, and subject matter experts.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet other leaders in their field. We hope to conclude the meeting with concrete proposals for ways that the PV training community can work together to build and continuously improve instructional strategies, information technology tools, interactive curricular materials in an area of common interest, and ensure these materials are integrated into the state-of-the-art of the construction and solar industry.

The site of the conference, The Hyatt Regency Baltimore, (300 Light St, Baltimore) is located close to BWI International Airport and shuttles available between the airport and the conference location.

This workshop is being held in conjunction with the Transformative Change Initiative’s 2015Learning Lab that will be held on Feb 17th and 18th. The fee for the Learning Lab will be waived for members of this workshop. For more information on the Transformative Change Initiative, please visit http://occrl.illinois.edu/projects/transformative_change.

You are responsible for arranging your own air and ground transportation, but you will be our guest once you arrive. To learn more about the Learning Lab and to register & indicate your hotel preference, please visit: http://www.transformativechange.info. Use the code “Energy” when the payment screen appears. This will waive your registration fee. Please do not contact the hotel to make reservations.

All participants of the Solar Workshop traveling from outside the Washington, DC area will have hotel accommodations expenses covered for one night. In addition, there are limited funds available to cover airfare expenses, on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please email michelleluceyfox@gmail.com with additional questions.

We look forward to seeing in you Baltimore!
