Geophysicist to Discuss Japanese Quake and Resulting Nuclear Accident

Haruo Sato, faculty at the Graduate School of Science at Tohoku University and co-author of “Seismic Wave Propogation and Scattering in the Heterogeneous Earth,” will speak at 3:40 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, in Room 110 of the Engineering Building. The event is free and open to the public.

Sato’s remarks will address the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake. The 9.0 temblor just off the shore of eastern Japan set off shocks and tsunamis that killed many people and destroyed infrastructure. Those dead and missing exceed more than 20,000. The shocks triggered a disastrous accident at Fukushima Daiici nuclear power plant, which released large amounts of radioactive substances into the environment. The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency rated the incident a “Level 7,” which is the same as the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

Sato will speak about the disaster, tectonic background and earthquake faulting, generation of tsunamis, the warning process, prediction status and what we can learn from this catastrophe.

Academic Technologies Offers Webinars about iPads in Education

Academic Technologies will host two webinars on Oct. 4 and Oct. 6 produced by Academic Impressions, both focusing on iPads in education. Seating is limited, so faculty and staff are encouraged to register at http://ctl.boisestate.edu/events/workshops/default.asp?filter=at.

iPad: Effective Use in the Classroom

When: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4
Where: Simplot/Micron Building, Room 210

The iPad offers endless possibilities for teaching and learning, but that doesn’t mean it is always an effective learning tool. A faculty member’s purpose for using the iPad is the most significant factor in determining successful use in the classroom. Join expert instructors online to discuss a framework to help you think about the iPad’s potential in your classroom, including such topics as exploring iPads, purposeful uses for learning, Pepperdine’s five-step process to help guide faculty members’ use of iPads in the classroom, assessment, tips for getting started and case studies. See the webinar brochure for more information.

iPad: Information Technology Support Considerations

When: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6
Where: Simplot/Micron Building, Room 106

As a consumer device, the iPad requires special consideration when supported on an enterprise level by IT staff in higher education. The iPad represents a new class of computing devices and requires generous amounts of bandwidth and accommodations on networks and network security infrastructures. Planning for the adoption of iPads requires special attention by network and information security teams. Among the topics covered are an overview of iPad hardware and support; bandwidth, network and network security infrastructure; third-party software, application, licensing and support; customization and standardization of software tools; adoption and support; and lessons learned. See the webinar brochure for more information.
