Workshop Half Day

Room: A 211 


In this workshop, presenters will return to last year's theme of "what's in the toolbox" and advance the project work to a logical conclusion. We will share common learning objectives anyone should pursue in learning product exposure assessment model, including sharing of checklists for overcoming questions/fears of model application, model selection logic, and presenting case studies. A novice modeler will share experiences in wading into the learning process. We will also share reference sources for many model parameters needed to pursue model use.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this workshops, attendees will:
a. Overcome paralysis of entering modeling arena (Student's Checklist)
b. Understand attributes of the models screened by the PSS/AIHA experts as appropriate for Product Exposure Assessment
c. Learn sources of reference inputs for models
d. Understand selection logic for models
e. Gain comparison tools available for outputs

Instructional Methods

Instruction will be by lecture and participatory exchange with attendees, followed by breakouts for hands-on practical exercises addressing model selections (problem solving), model input sources (discussion), and model execution (hands-on work). We will conclude with attendees reporting out as to their experience from the progression.
