Measuring Airflow

Understanding airflow is a key element of HVACR system performance which can reduce the

energy cost of heating and cooling systems as well as extending their life. The science behind

good airflow measurements, the importance of considering air density corrections, picking the

correct tool for the measurement task or application, and airflow techniques will be explored and

explained.

The Laws of Education

Dr. Michael Lanoutte, Everest Colleges

Legacy South 2

The HVACR field and excellent teaching have one very important thing in common; both fields

are dramatically affected by the Laws of Physics. The goal of the presentation is to give

participants a practical set of teaching methods which parallel ideals found in the world of

Physics. This presentation strips always all the learning theory, learning styles, and fancy

learning technology and gives instructors the foundational tools to better connect with their

students.

Using Social Media to Extend Your Reach

Carter Stanfield, Co-Author, Fundamentals of Refrigeration

Legacy South 3

This session will cover the use of various forms of social media to extend your reach and allow

you to build a network with professionals from around the world. Actively engaging in social

media helps instructors build a network with their students, introduces students to a higher

level of professional discussion and resources than they can get at any one campus or location.

This session will involve a brief discussion of the basics for getting started in different types of

social media, some examples of things to avoid, some examples of successful strategies, and a

survey of social networking resources that instructors can plug into to get started.
