Connecting the Faculty of Agriculture to industry – shout out to fall instructors!

Posted by stephanie rogers on November 27, 2020 in News

This fall, Extended Learning worked with 19 different instructors to make 27 credit courses available to the public for non-credit registration. The list included both degree-level and diploma-level courses, and courses were promoted as professional development opportunities for the agriculture industry. A total of 7 industry-based students registered for courses, and the experience has been a positive one.

“I’m very much enjoying the class and I really like the format,” says Carla Mackay, non-credit SOIL2000 student. “Now that I’m acclimated to Brightspace, things are great! I would definitely recommend it for anyone needing a refresher on soils.”

Extended Learning would like to express thanks to everyone who agreed to open their courses to external audiences this fall, which has served as a great test run! The work continues. The list of winter semester courses currently being promoted to industry can be found here. Don’t see your course on the list, but think it would be a good fit for industry? Email Colette ( or Ashley ( and we’ll make it happen!
