PROED 623 Agile Project Management SCRUM
Agile project management has become increasingly more popular over the last several years. This course provides a short overview explaining why Agile is so popular and how it fits in with the Project Management Institute, Waterfall method, and other project management methodologies. However, the bulk of the time will be spent learning how to lead projects utilizing Scrum, which is one of the leading Agile methodologies. Participants will leave with a solid understanding of how to manage a Scrum project from start to finish.

NASA’s Kepler mission has revolutionized our understanding of planets and planetary systems. It is NASA’s first mission capable of finding Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone, which is the range of distance from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.

People with disabilities comprise more than 10% of the U.S. population. Web content is inaccessible for many of these individuals, preventing them from connecting with ideas, products and communities. SLCC Associate Professor Melissa Helquist will provide tips and tools for writing accessible web content in this workshop intended for non-profits, businesses, or individuals seeking to improve web accessibility. Cost: $20. Registration is required.
Individuals engage in numerous activities (purchasing and driving a car, applying lawn pesticides) with environmental consequences (lifecycle product impacts, tailpipe emissions, contaminated run-off). The environmental harms occasioned by these activities are often individually de minimis but collectively significant. Environmental law largely ignores individuals as a source of environmental harms but it will be necessary to more directly address harms arising from environmentally significant individual behaviors to make progress toward sustainability, mitigate climate change, and, more generally, tackle second generation environmental challenges.
Climate change can impact a project directly, as when sea level rise threatens a coastal transportation project, or influence the environmental impact of a project, as when climate change is projected to further decrease or degrade a species’ habitat. How should (or must) these climate adaptation considerations be addressed during environmental review processes? In 2010, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) released Draft NEPA Guidance on Consideration of the Effects of Climate Change and Greenhouse Gas Emissions. The draft climate guidance addresses many aspects of adaptation review , including instructing agencies how to determine which climate change impacts warrant consideration, cautioning agencies to respect the “rule of reason” when deciding the appropriate emphasis and level of detail to devote to the assessment of the impacts of climate change, and directing that climate change impacts should be incorporated into the reasonably foreseeable future condition of the affected environment. Many questions remain, however, about how to incorporate projected climate change impacts into environmental review. This talk reviews agency guidance, case law, and select environmental review documents prepared pursuant to NEPA to better understand how climate change impacts should (or must) be addressed in environmental review.
The Tanner Humanities Center is proud to present the 2013 World Leaders Lecture Forum.
Please join us for a lecture by human rights activist John Prendergast, titled “A Changing Africa.” This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required, but please arrive early for seating.
Much of the news from Africa highlights the catastrophic and the tragic with war, famine, and lawlessness dominating the headlines. Yet, many of the deadliest wars in Africa have been resolved and the transformation from war to peace and lawlessness to order now under way. In his lecture, Prendergast will focus on Hollywood images that portray Africa in a hopeless state and then reveal the sharply contrasting reality. He will also situate Africa in a historical progression that sees war as a significant factor in state formation, true in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.
John Prendergast is a human rights activist and best-selling author who has worked for peace in Africa for over 25 years. He is the co-founder of the Enough Project, an initiative to end genocide and crimes against humanity.
