TECHNOLOGY AND DISTANCE EDUCATION NEWS
Susan Zucker, Ph.D., Director of Technology & Distance Education

The BIG news is that Law 101: Legal Guide for the Forensic Expert has been completed and has been billed by the National Institute of Justice as one of the most POPULAR courses housed on DNA.gov EVER! Law 101, an online course, is designed to inform non-lawyers about policies, procedures, and protocols when serving as an expert witness and the ramifications and responsibilities therein. Two deliverables were produced: an interactive web-based program and a text-based primer. The web-based program is housed on DNA.gov. The public has free access to it and anyone can establish an account to gain access to the full course. Access to the text-based/PDF version.

NCSTL will be offering another round of workshops to train capital prosecutors and defense attorneys in 2012; dates TBA. Additionally, other forensic training will be offered in collaboration with the SANE-SART (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner-Sexual Assault Response Team) Resource Service. This training will be web-based and will inform a minimum of 1,000 pre-selected victim service providers, forensic science practitioners, professionals in the legal and criminal justice systems, and others involved in treating victims of sexual assault. NCSTL provides continuing education credits at its trainings.
