3 Modules Prepare Students for Global Logistics Demands Logisticians work with people they do not know while separated by distance, language, culture, and time zones. Security requirements in the wake of the Iraq War and terrorist attacks place even more complex demands on logisticians. The online modules developed by the Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE) for Secure Logistics project cover these realities and the new technologies that move materials through global supply chains. The ATE project continues a partnership between the UNC- Chapel Hill and Lenoir Community College that began with a previous National Science Foundation grant. Lenoir faculty members supply content for the modules that teachers anywhere may access online for minicourses or additions to existing curricula. Lenoir has recently completed articulation agreements with East Carolina University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for its Global Logistics Technology program. The college s completely online version of courses for the Global Logistics Technology certificates and degrees attracts students from Alaska, Japan, Australia, Vietnam, and Iraq. The CLE project partners serve as advisors for new industry and degree programs in Nebraska, Oklahoma, and North Carolina. The project also involves collaborating with international educational institutions. The Monterrey Institute of Technology in Monterrey, Mexico, is translating the CLE modules into Spanish. Students and faculty in Tsinghua University in Beijing, China, participate in a simulation of global supply chain activities with U.S. students. I feel like I have gained valuable knowledge of the total logistics concept. Since starting the program, I have taken on the added responsibility of handling my company s export [and] import business. A collaborative game, called ROAM for Radio Frequency Identification Online Aviation Module, allows students to simulate the management of aviation parts using new radio frequency technologies.

4 Computer Security and Data Assurance Associate Degree Program Norwalk Community College (NCC) Norwalk, CT The program greatly enhances NCC s ability to achieve a level of certification and recognition by NSA [National Security Agency] and other government agencies. John R. Cordani, Senior Computer Scientist Computer Science Corporation Manassas, VA ATE Project Adds Cyber Security to All NCC Computer Science Courses In the process of developing its computer security and data assurance associate degree program, Norwalk Community College (NCC) used industry advice to infuse security issues into every computer science course at the college. This ATE project outcome continues to have a profound effect on how faculty members teach computer science at NCC. Each course now includes at least one module detailing how to design more secure software. In many courses, security concerns are embedded from start to finish. NCC s curriculum both fits industry s needs and aligns with universities curricula. Consequently, graduates of NCC s program are ready to enter the workforce or to transfer to baccalaureate programs with industry-acknowledged expertise. Most students exit the program as Cisco Certified Network Associates. The new curriculum also prepares students to take the Cisco PIX Firewall specialist exam. The depth and breadth of faculty knowledge of computer security issues is greater thanks to the grant s support of faculty participation in industry externships and conferences. Faculty members use their knowledge not only to teach in their classrooms but also to reach out into the community. For instance, the college s Cyber Security Challenges attract attention to the high school computer science programs that articulate to NCC and involve computer security industry personnel in the student competition. NCC students collaborate on a computer security project. 78
5 Tacoma Community College Fills Niche for Logistics, Transportation Workers More than $40 billion worth of goods travel through the ports of Puget Sound each year, leading to tens of thousands of direct and indirect jobs. Tacoma Community College, which is near the Port of Tacoma, is using its ATE grant to develop an effective and relevant logistics program for people who work or want to work at the ports. The Creation of Instructional Program in Secure Logistics project fills a niche in the Puget Sound region. In the region, there is high demand for people capable of dealing with the large volume of goods that travel from manufacturers to consumers and of checking the security of those goods. The project provides instruction not otherwise available in the region both to current workers who want to learn more to advance in their careers and to those competing for entry-level positions. The college works closely with industry and its professional technical advisory committee to structure its certificate and degree programs in secure logistics, transportation, and supply chain management so they align with workplace competencies.

9 Terrorist Agent Control Technology Program Uses All Hazards Approach Terrorism response activities are not limited to one or two occupations. Technicians working in science, industry, agriculture, environmental management, public service, and law enforcement must respond to terrorist threats. Because these same people also deal with accidental releases of hazardous agents, Kirkwood Community College employs an all hazards approach for the Terrorist Agent Control Technology (TACT) program. Kirkwood has been a national leader in environmental safety and security education for 30 years. TACT s online credit courses provide a basic scientific understanding of the biological and chemical agents that terrorists use. The courses also introduce the instrumentation and techniques necessary to sample and detect hazardous agents. These courses, as part of the TACT certification program, have been adapted for continuing opportunities through the American Board of Industrial Hygienists and the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science, which grants Professional Acknowledgment for Continuing Education or PACE credits. By the fall of 2007, 80 students had completed TACT credit courses offered through Kirkwood Community College, Monroe Community College (NY), the National Labor College (MD), and Westmoreland Community College (PA). The Pennsylvania National Guard and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center are adapting TACT s format and materials for a community education project. The TACT initiative also instigated a close working relationship between Kirkwood Community College, the University of Iowa Hygienic Laboratory, and the Iowa Learning Resource Network. Hazardous materials teams throughout Iowa now use educational materials that the three organizations created together. Students master response skills in controlled practice settings and on the job after completing online course work. Terrorist Agent Control Technology (TACT) Kirkwood Community College Cedar Rapids, IA The wealth of up-to-date information provided within this course, coupled with hot-links to the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], virtual exercises, and self-quizzes provides the right balance of information and learning.
