The purpose of this course is to help you sift the different approaches and choose the ones that actually worked and prove worthy based on overall research. Because this course is only 16 hours, it is a short and intense class. We hope that you will discover some assessment techniques to use in your classroom as well as find ways to improve existing methods.

Prevention is the best tool to eliminate sexual harassment in the workplace. Employers are encouraged to take steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment from occurring. They should clearly communicate to employees that sexual harassment will not be tolerated. They can do so by providing sexual harassment training to their employees and by establishing an effective complaint or grievance process. Why is this course important? When investigating allegations of sexual harassment, investigators look at the whole record, the circumstances, such as the nature of the sexual advances, and the context in which the alleged incidents occurred.

What do you think of when you hear the word nutrition? Does it conjure up memories of the Four Food Groups? The Food Guide Pyramid? How about weighing and measuring your food? Or better yet, does it conjure up images of celery sticks and leafy greens? Well, any time you embark on an experience, such as taking a class like this one, you might want to ask yourself similar types of questions.

After taking this course, you will have an improved understanding of the basics of nutrition. Ultimately, this knowledge will help you provide healthy options for your customers, and more importantly, yourselves.

No written recipe can be 100 percent accurate. No matter how carefully a recipe is written, the judgment of the cook is still the most important factor in a preparation turning out well. A cook’s judgment is based on experience, on an understanding of the raw materials available, and on knowledge of basic cooking principles and food science.

Ever since Carême began to define the principles and methods that lie behind the recipes we use, professional cooking has been based on procedures and methods rather than only on recipes. In the twenty-first century, chefs have improved their knowledge not just of cooking theory but also of the science behind it.

This course deals with basic principles. You will learn about what happens to food when it is heated, about how food is cooked by different methods, and about rules of seasoning and flavoring. It is important to understand the science of food and cooking so you can successfully use these principles in the kitchen.

In this course, you will study the causes of food-borne diseases and kitchen injuries, and you will learn ways of preventing them. Prevention, of course, is the most important thing to learn. It is not as important to be able to recite the names of disease-causing bacteria as it is to be able to prevent their growth in food.

Rules of personal hygiene and sanitary food handling were not invented just to make your life difficult. There are good reasons for all of them. Instead of starting this module with lists of rules, we first talk about the causes of food-borne diseases. Then, when we get to the rules, you will understand why they are important. This will make them easier to remember and to practice.

The rules presented in this course are basic guidelines only. Local health departments have more detailed regulations. All food-service operators are responsible for knowing the health department regulations in their own city and state.

The information presented here is practical as well as theoretical. It should not merely be learned but also put to use systematically. One effective system food-service establishments can use to ensure food safety is the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system. This practical program identifies possible danger points and sets up procedures for corrective action.

Welcome to food safety! From the outside looking in, most culinary professionals view this material as tedious and somewhat boring. Nothing could be further from the truth, as this is information that relates to the viability of a food establishment's operation! Foodborne illness is a reality for everyone: customer, company, institution and family. Learning the skills to operate a safe food service is fundamental to the enjoyment of your work. It is our goal to not only equip you with information, but to provide you with the knowledge base that enables you to explain: 'why we do it this way'. As you impart this understanding to those you supervise, you envelope them in a common goal: a great food safety program.

Foodborne illness is a reality for everyone: customer, company, institution and family. Learning the skills to operate a safe food service is fundamental to the enjoyment of your work. It is our goal to not only equip you with information, but to provide you with the knowledge base that enables you to explain: 'why we do it this way'. As you impart this understanding to those you supervise, you envelope them in a common goal: a great food safety program.

You have chosen a course that sheds light on the complicated process of designing and developing curriculum. Often times, the theoretical nature of this area of study can make the subject matter feel a bit heavy. I hope that we will present you with material that "breathes" by way of its applicability to the curriculum you are developing or teaching at your school or college. To shake off the feeling of being talked at (or even worse, lectured to), we have included many projects for hands-on application. After all, this is where the learning and usefulness of the presented material will benefit you most.

To be successful in the food-service industry, cooks need more than the ability to prepare delicious, attractive, and nutritious foods. They also must have a talent for organization and efficiency. In every kitchen, a great many tasks must be completed over a given time and by a limited number of workers. No matter when these tasks are done, they must all come together at one crucial point: service time. Only if advance preparation is done thoroughly and systematically can service go smoothly.

Good chefs take pride in the thoroughness and quality of their advance preparation, or mise en place (meez-on-plahss). This French term, meaning “everything put in place,” is an important and often-heard expression in North American kitchens because food-service professionals understand its importance to the success of the establishment.

This course deals with the basic concepts of mise en place as well as specific operations that are normally part of the mise en place.

This course is for those people who are on the cusp of entrepreneurship. For the people intrigued by the thought of running their own business, but not quite sure how to go about it. Or who are unsure of their ability to be successful at it. If you are looking to enroll in this course or have started doing research, you are capable of doing it, and all you need is a little help and guidance. I want to help you, and I want this course to be a resource for you. One thing that I have learned about entrepreneurship and running businesses is that it is always, and I stress the word always, easier if you can learn from the mistakes of others. Learning from the successes of others is great, but learning from mistakes is even better.

This course will take you on a journey of reflection and hopefully, inspiration. Since you are an educator, the truly difficult work is already being done. We are teachers ourselves and know how many long hours go into preparing just one class. This course has been designed to help you reflect upon your own teaching methods and possibly offer some new ideas for you to add to your teaching palate. We hope to make this course informative as well as engaging. Your time is valuable and we want to offer practical tools for you to use in the classroom. I remember so many classes in graduate school that looked great on paper but offered no tools for me to use back in the classroom. This course is different. You will walk away with practical tools to help focus your lessons and improve student learning. All you need is an open mind, a writing journal, and a classroom in which to test out some new ideas.

This course is designed for any food service professional who works with vegetarian customers. Vegetarianism has entered the mainstream in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and elsewhere. According to survey estimates, the number of vegetarians in the United States has more than doubled in the last 15 years. The course is not intended to advocate vegetarianism or to criticize vegetarians or their philosophy. In general, vegetarian diets are seen as positive and healthful alternatives to most modern diets. Nevertheless, it will at times offer pointed criticisms of some habits and belief systems common to vegetarians.

The course will review the many reasons why some people choose to be vegetarian and describe the types of vegetarian diets. The course will objectively discuss the health benefits and risks of various vegetarian regimens and present nutritional guidelines and practical menu suggestions for serving vegetarian clients.

Any teacher can fill a bookshelf with books about education. Any teacher can study lists of guidelines, standards, principles, and theories. The best teachers and the worst teachers can ace exams in their undergraduate and graduate classes. The difference between more effective teachers and their less effective colleagues is not what they know. It is what they do.

This course is about what great teachers do that sets them apart. Clarifying what the best educators do, and then practicing it ourselves, can move us into their ranks. This course is not meant to prescribe a narrow set of instructions. Instead, it frames the landscape of school from the perspective of great teachers. What do they see when they view their classrooms and the students in them? Where do they focus their attention? How do they spend their time and energy? What guides their decisions? How can we gain the same advantages?
