    This popular two-day class has shifted the paradigms of hundreds of people and raised the science communication bar at conferences, public meetings, and educational events. It features best practices for designing presentations and is especially geared towards scientists, educators, and professionals who work in the public and private sectors.


    On Day 1, you’ll learn about best practices in message development and slide design - with several opportunities for hands-on application. Over the following 2 weeks, you’ll design a 5-minute presentation applying what you’ve learned. When you return to class on Day 2, you’ll give your presentation and receive valuable feedback and coaching. As you witness the other presentations, you’ll see how much more interesting and engaging it is to view slides that are designed without excessive text and bullet points. The ultimate goal of the training is to improve your science communication skills, while making your presentations more enjoyable for you and more engaging for your audience. (12 CM AICP Credits/ CEP Points)


    Tech check held on 2/22, 9am-9:30am, or 3pm-3:30pm.


    In this class, you will learn how to:


    · Transform the way you do PowerPoint;

    · Deliver a crystal-clear message;

    · Present data in a way that sticks in people’s brains;

    · Keep your audience interested and engaged.

     

    NOTE: This class has recently been converted into an online format. Great care has been taken to incorporate variety, such as break-out rooms for small group sharing, white boards for instruction and group discussion, independent tabletop exercises to give you a break from your computer, a shortened agenda, and frequent breaks. The class size has also been reduced.

    This three-day intensive workshop will provide wetland regulators and consultants with practical information and experience in using the 2014 update to the rating system for wetlands in western Washington. It is specifically designed for those who will be using the rating system in the field. You will gain a working knowledge of topics such as the hydrogeomorphic classification of wetlands, how to separate wetlands into units for rating, and how to answer all the questions on the field form. The purpose of the class is to provide you with knowledge so that you can fill out the rating form on your own. You will receive a copy of the rating system manual.

    It is important that you already have some experience and/or education in delineating wetlands and identifying natural wetland features such as outlets, boundaries of basins, vegetation classes, and some ability to distinguish between different plant species.


    This course will include three virtual sessions (3/3, 3/4, and 3/12) and one solo field visit. The virtual lecture sessions will be hosted on Zoom on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 (9:00 AM – 12:30 PM) and Thursday, March 4, 2021 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM). From 3/4/2021 to 3/11/2021, each participant will visit two field sites on their own. The sites are located at the Woodland Creek Community Park in Lacey, WA and Capitol Lake Interpretive Park in Olympia, WA. You should plan to spend 4.5 hours at the field sites in total. After visiting the field sites, you will be required to submit your findings to a survey that will be provided on 3/4. As follow up to this, the instructor will host a virtual post-field site visit session on Zoom on Friday, March 12, 2021 (9:00 AM - 12:00 PM). During this session, the instructor will answer questions and go over the expected findings from the field visits.


    Tech check held on 3/1, 9am-9:30am, or 3pm-3:30pm.


    Please note that all three virtual sessions (3/3, 3/4, and 3/12) and the solo field session are mandatory for obtaining your certification for the rating system (9.5 CM AICP Credits/CEP Points)

(2.5 AICP credits/CEP Points)


    Additionally, we will host a separate tech check session where you can check your audio and visual connection and practice using the Zoom features that we will use during the module. This session is optional, however block your calendar for 8 - 8:30 AM or 3-3:30 PM on April 12th, 2021 if you plan to attend one of these tech sessions.
