Subject: Practical learning "nuggets" sought
Comments: cc: behmm**At_Symbol_Here**
Dear Colleagues:

My friend and I have the unenviable job of coordinating the Academic
Affairs newsletter for the American Society of Safety Engineers.

We would like to include a new column, with the working title of
"Nuggets."  Our idea is to use experiences from practicing safety and
health professionals in institutions as a teaching tool.  Specifically,
since our audience are instructors/professors in SEH, we would like to
know about situations that you found, and how you fixed them. The idea
would be that a teacher could find an analogous situation at his/her
school and use it as a "show and tell" for the students in the sense
that we could bring theory into reality.

Mike and I would be willing to publish "name and institution withheld
by request" if you are worried about bad press...of course, we would
like to be able to print your name and phone number if there are any
quesitons. But the situation could be described effectively without
identification: for example, at a "mid-sized midwestern college, this
situation was encountered at the photo lab....

If you have a situation you wouldn't mind writing up, let us know.  Or
contact either of us for more information. Thanks. Sharon
