Amy Orf (Modern Languages and Literatures) presented "Technology and Academic Dishonesty in the 21st Century" at the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP) 94th Annual Conference San Juan, Puerto Rico. She demonstrated how foreign language students can and do use 21st-century technology, particularly websites such as "Google Translate," in academically dishonest ways. Orf discussed possible prevention options.
Martin Reinhardt (Center for Native American Studies) gave a presentation at the third annual Pathways to
Respecting American Indian Civil Rights conference Aug. 8-9 in Denver, Colo. Sponsored primarily by local colleges and government agencies, the event drew more than 30 speakers. According to an article in Indian Country Today, sessions underscored the positive role of Native American women. The themes of women as wise and respected, yet sometimes abused, were reflected in various sessions. Reinhardt presented at one titled "Dads and Daughters." His talk was based on previous research conducted in Colorado related to the American Indian Dads and Daughters program, which took information from 60 fathers representing at least 50 tribes.
