Sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the High Impact Technology Exchange Conference (HI-TEC) directly addresses the unique needs of technician educators. During the conference you will discover exciting advances in both technology and teaching that will help prepare your students...
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.

Subscribers looking for culinary companionship during COVID-19 isolation delighted in Home Cooking. After a brief hiatus, the award-winning podcast is back with new recipes and jokes to spice up your kitchen. Readers who have yet to tune in will want to check it out. As Episode 15 alludes to, the show is as good as finding extra French fries in the bottom of the bag ... so, really, really good. Launched in March 2020 amidst COVID-19 shutdowns, Home Cooking provides a tasty silver lining, helping listeners "figure out what to cook (and keep[ing] you company) during the quarantine." Samin Nosrat (writer and chef) and Hrishikesh Hirway (maker of music and podcasts) co-host the show, which dedicates a significant portion of its content to answering listeners' questions. And Nosrat, the James Beard Award-winning author of the New York Times Bestseller Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, is more than qualified to provide expert advice. While the clever episode titles lure listeners in (for example, "Kohlrabi: Turnip for What?" and "Cod Save America"), the recipes and tips keep audiences enchanted. Those new to the cooking scene may also enjoy some of the pair's recommendations on the Resources page. Here, readers will find advice on everything from cookbooks to Creole mustard. Readers can tune in to Home Cooking at the link above or on a preferred listening platform (all available platforms are linked on the site's Subscribe page). Though, it is worth noting that following the link above allows for the added benefits of accessing episode transcripts and embedded recipes discussed on the show.
