Queer Words welcomes listeners into "conversations with queer-identified authors about their works and lives." Wayne Goodman hosts the podcast, which features a variety of authors from all different backgrounds and locations. Listeners will find themselves immersed in conversations with Jim Provenzano, "Lambda Literary award-winning author, playwright, photographer, journalist, editor, and activist," (see the August 18, 2020 episode) and Arisa White, "poet, Cave Canem fellow, community event organizer, and professor of Creative Writing at Colby College," (see the April 22, 2020 episode), among many others. At least one new episode is released each week, and most installments are short (around 20 minutes in length), so prepare for binge-listening. Each episode begins with Goodman asking guests "what qualifies you as queer," which opens up conversations on identity, acceptance, and community. While episodes are upbeat and good-humored, they still cover substantive topics such as restorative justice and advocacy. Listeners can tune in at the link above or on popular podcast platforms such as Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

These interactive learning objects focus on concepts that cover a broad-based electromechanical program. The majority of these objects have been created for electronics, but during the next three years (until 2008), at least 300 more objects will be built that will focus on other topic areas such as hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanical design, and process control (see complete list on the left side of this page). Instructors from Fox Valley Technical College and other colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System are creating these objects. FVTC has partnered with four other colleges throughout the United States that will be contributing to this repository. The effectiveness of learning objects was demonstrated in an evaluation conducted at FVTC during the 2004-2005 academic year. A brief summary of the evaluation can be read by clicking on the Assessment button on this Home Page. These objects can also be found on the Wisc-Online digital library at www.wisconline.org. Learning objects are available to be used at no cost by teachers and students worldwide via the Internet.
