Beebe Hall, 2nd floor conference room

This talk is open to all. Lunch will be served. Metered parking is available in the Plantations lot across the road from Beebe Hall.

This presentation will showcase a new online training created by the BCTR's ACT for Youth Center of Excellence in conjunction with Ithaca Content Architecture and Design (ICAD), a local instructional media development firm. ACT for Youth works with 58 agencies across New York State and in New York City, building their capacity to deliver evidence-based programs in adolescent sexual health with fidelity and quality. Turnover of front line staff has emerged as a major challenge. Since on-site training was not a sustainable strategy, ACT for Youth teamed up with ICAD to develop an interactive, online training course for front line educators. ACT for Youth supplied content while ICAD contributed their expertise in distance learning and multi-media development. The training was piloted this summer with great success. In this presentation, Jutta and Lisa will provide a short guided tour and discuss the benefits of online training as part of a comprehensive technical assistance and training program.

Jutta Dotterweich has been an Extension Associate at the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research since 1999 and is currently the Training Coordinator for the ACT for Youth Center of Excellence. At the BCTR, her work has centered on training and curriculum development in interagency collaboration, community youth development, youth engagement and adolescent sexual health. Prior to her work at Cornell University, she worked for many years as a mental health professional and youth services provider in New Jersey and New York State. She received her MA in Psychology from the Westfalische Wilhelms University in Muenster, Germany in 1979.

Lisa Dundon has over ten years of experience designing and building online educational media. Her career in online teaching and training began with the development of online help systems and multimedia tutorials for a software company and continued at eCornell and Cornell University with the development of web-based courses. Lisa has degrees in cognitive psychology, physics, and mathematics. She formed Ithaca Content Architecture and Design in 2005.
