Innovations in Agri‑Education Symposium II
Members of the Faculty of Agriculture (faculty, staff, and graduate students) are invited to attend the second annual symposium on teaching/learning innovations in Agri-Education. Come learn that colleagues on our campus are doing. It promises to be a stimulating time of both sharing, discussion and PD!!
The morning starts off with coffee (plan to arrive 9:45 to sign in and get your coffee/tea). The day will feature 10 different innovations using a 6 minute ‘snapper’ format. There will be time to allow Q&A and more detailed discussion with the innovators after the presentations. Topics include the Dal-AC Outdoor Classroom, Farm Centre Learning Exhibit, Youtube instructional videos and much more!
The Dean has graciously agreed to provide a working lunch for the first 50 registrants.
