Zoonotic Disease and Biosecurity 2.00 Every year, zoological organizations are faced by new challenges in maintaining the health of their animal collections. Zoonosis, or disease that can be spread between species, forms one of the greatest threats to the safety of animals, guests, and keepers. Using a case study from a zoonotic disease concern at the San Diego Zoo, you will learn the basics of zoonotic disease identification and prevention, including standard record keeping, best practices, health and safety protocols for keepers, and the understanding of how disease can be spread.
Zoom Meeting Basics 0.50 Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client and a mobile app that allows users to meet online, with or without video.

In this course we will go through the major features of Zoom Meetings.
Zoological Record Keeping 2.00 Keeping accurate animal-care records is an important part of zookeeping and a requirement for AZA accreditation and permitting. Standardized information systems that can be transferred and maintained collaboratively between organizations can help you identify health issues, develop sustainable species populations, and address conservation challenges. Using a case study from a zoonotic disease concern at the San Diego Zoo, you will learn the basics of record keeping, including standard abbreviations, animal identification systems, best practices in reporting, and a list of record types every accredited facility should maintain.

Youth Development Trends: Focus on Older Youth: Programming Approaches 1.00 The Center for Early Adolescence at the University of North Carolina and the Search Institute have found that early adolescence is a time of rapid change in youth development and developmental needs. For many children, the characteristic needs of early adolescence begin to emerge as early as age nine, when children are still in elementary school and attending traditional school-age care programs. School-age care professionals who understand these emerging needs are better equipped to create successful program experiences with older children in their programs. In this course, we will examine programming approaches that address the needs of older youth.
