Disaster Mitigation and Preparation; Sustainable Development in Ile-a-Vache, Haiti –Working Across the Curriculum – Massachusetts Maritime Academy’s Emergency Management Program’s Cooperative Education Model

By Prof. Thomas F. Lennon, Massachusetts Maritime Academy
In January 2010, Massachusetts Maritime Academy (MMA) initiated a cooperative education program through its Emergency Management major for students interested in international relief and disaster assistance.  The location – Haiti!! MMA partnered with the EDEM Foundation, a Haiti-based non-governmental organization, to support a program focused on sustainable development issues for the small island community of Ile-a-Vache, Haiti. How was the program developed? How do you establish the relationships required to sustain a vigorous international undergraduate cooperative education program? What are the program goals and how do you critically evaluate both the program and student performance? What about institutional support?  These and more questions will be answered in Prof. Lennon’s presentation.

Engaging Students in Disaster Relief Training Exercises

By Dr. John Fisher, Utah Valley University
For 5 years emergency services students have been involved in disaster relief exercises in the United States and Macedonia.  What learning outcomes have resulted from these exercises?  What have students learned by participating in these exercises?  Have students honed or developed skills that are readily transferable to “real world” response? In this case study presentation, Dr. Fisher describes how students have developed emergency response capabilities through practical application of knowledge in simulated incidents. Join us to learn one more way for students to obtain needed experience in emergency management.
