Presenter: Angela D. Passmore, Computer Education Department

Visualize simply pressing two or three keys on the keyboard as opposed to moving your hand to the mouse to accomplish a task in Excel. These shortcuts can perform many functions, from ones as simple as navigation within the spreadsheet to filling in formulas or grouping data, and are of particular help to users with carpel tunnel and vision or mobility disabilities. In this session, the presenter will explain how and why to use Excel Short Cut Keys, making your daily tasks faster and easier to complete.

Active Shooter/Violent Intruder and Workplace Awareness Training
Presenters: James Griffith and Mike Knowles
Dictated by tragic events and statistics, SJR State Campus Safety and Security has revised its lockdown procedures to reflect the new standard of care developed and implemented by the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies designed to supplement/enhance protocols (response procedures) during an emergency. Between 2000-2013, there were 160 “active shooter” incidents, and about 70% of the incidents took place at schools or businesses. In order to mitigate causalities during an active shooter/violent intruder event, it is critical to train faculty, staff, and students on the concept of being proactive in order to build their confidence when reacting to time- sensitive, life-threatening situations. This training while use the concepts of ALICE – Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate – a set of options-based strategies that effectively prepare, prevent, and increase an individual’s chances of survival during a violent intruder or active shooter event.
