Making Effective Academic Posters: the #BetterPoster Approach Brittney Van D… Tue, 09/15/2020 - 01:53

Scientific posters haven't changed in 30 years, which should be alarming to you (nothing in science should be stagnant). And evidence suggests they are incredibly ineffective. In this talk, you will learn the evidence-based design principles that science has discovered in the last 30 years (since the birth of the Internet) and how you can apply them to create fully-modern scientific posters that transmit your knowledge much more effectively to other scientists, and help you and them have more fun at poster sessions too.

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Training, October Session

Please note, approximately one week prior to the training, you will receive an email with links and required course materials.

This training will cover Responsible Conduct for Research, or RCR. It is a REQUIREMENT from our funder, the National Science Foundation, that all funded students and Post-Docs complete RCR training.

The RCR October session is now CLOSED

Carrots, Sticks and Other "Smart" Tricks in Making Energy Consumption Smarter

Capturing human behavior in engineering models is challenging, in part because humans themselves are challenging. This talk will discuss a series of pilot experiments run with utilities in Vermont, the goals of which were to understand how investments in a smarter grid—primarily advanced metering and distribution systems—could help residential customers conserve energy during peak demand periods.

New Mexico’s Climate Strategy and Electricity Sector Implications iserna Thu, 07/16/2020 - 10:44

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued Executive Order 2019-003 on climate change in January 2019. This order established the New Mexico Interagency Climate Change Task Force and included several policy directives for state agencies to implement. This presentation will give an overview of the 2019 New Mexico Climate Strategy report produced in response to EO 2019-003. We will also cover legislative and regulatory updates from the past few months and provide additional depth and detail on strategy and planned action in the electricity sector.

STEM Advancement Program (STEMAP): Student Presentations & Virual Poster Session iserna Wed, 07/15/2020 - 02:35

Please join us for the 2020 STEMAP student presentations and virtual poster session!

STEMAP engages students from NM’s regional universities, community colleges, and tribal colleges in NM SMART Grid Center research and training. Students spend 8-weeks working under the direction of faculty mentors at NMSU, NMT, and UNM. The NM SMART Grid Center, an interdisciplinary National Science Foundation (NSF) project, is pursuing research and workforce training for next-generation electric power production and delivery.

Distributed Energy Workforce – Virtual Summit iserna Fri, 07/10/2020 - 03:19

The Distributed Energy Workforce at Santa Fe Community College is pleased to announce the Virtual Summit on emerging workforce training opportunities in Distributed Energy Systems.

SFCC’s Smart and Microgrid Training Center has established a program and hired a full-time faculty member to develop curricula, degrees, and certifications in this critical aspect of grid modernization.

Join us to learn about this program, the broader opportunities, and how all New Mexico educational institutions can share and cooperate to maximize the potential.

Science Communication: Developing Your Elevator Pitch Webinar iserna Fri, 07/10/2020 - 11:37

Effective communication is organized, relevant, and engaging. The elevator pitch is your first interaction with a colleague, funder, journalist, etc. The key to a good elevator pitch is to develop a good story and convey it effectively. These exercises are designed to help participants tell a compelling story with strategies that help you develop that story to instantly hook your audience.
