      All, Please spread the word regarding our NEW TRAINING WORKSHOPS.....Thanks, Tom


      Colleagues,

      The 2011 Northeast Recreation Research (NERR) Symposium will be offering two NEW Training Workshops. The new training workshops are intended to appeal to a diverse audience (Managers/Professional, Faculty and Students). The training workshops will last three hours each and will run in conjunction with the conference. Please find below information on the training workshops and how you can register for the training workshops and the NERR Symposium.

      Training Workshops (NEW to NERR) See Information below on NEW Training Sessions
      #1 - Communicating Recreation Research Findings to Non-Technical Audiences
      #2- Engaging Communities through Sustainable Recreation: Methods and Processes for Public Land Managers

      Training Workshop #1
      Communicating Recreation Research Findings to Non-Technical Audiences:

      Instructor:
      Jerry J. Vaske, Human Dimensions of Natural Resources, Colorado State University
      Description: A primary goal of recreation research is to provide information that can inform and improve decision–making. The Potential for Conflict Index (PCI) and associated graphical display were developed to facilitate understanding and applicability of research findings to managerial concerns and to non-technical audiences. The approach requires little statistical training to understand results, minimizes effort required to process information, and improves comprehension. This workshop will: (a) introduce the second generation of the PCI (PCI2), and (b) provide attendees with practical hands-on experience in calculating, graphing and comparing PCI2 values.
      Requirements: Attendees will be expected to have their own laptop computers with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint software.

      Training Workshop #2

      Engaging Communities through Sustainable Recreation: Methods and Processes for Public Land Managers
      Instructor: Laurie Thorpe, US Forest Service Enterprise Team Leader
      Description: Land managers have identified a need to involve stakeholders in attempting to develop a model of sustainability. Sustainability may be achieved when the appropriate balance is found regarding economic, social and biological variables. The USFS Sustainable Recreation model will be explained through the use of case studies on various US National Forest settings. These case studies will focus on stakeholder engagement, the identification of values and issues through real-time surveying, and expected outcomes.
