Workshop: eXtension/Ecampus/On Campus: Synergies in Curriculum Development

To explore how eXtension Communities of Practice are developing curricula and educational resources to train current and future agricultural professionals through eXtension's Moodle campus, on campus, Ecampus, and other educational venues.
Most eXtension agriculture-based Communities of Practice (CoPs) initially publish educational resources such as articles, videos, learning lessons, and webinars to to support and train farmers and the agricultural professionals who work with them.  However, CoPs soon discover that educators and undergraduate and graduate students are or could be significant users of these same resources. At the same time, online credit- and certificate-based learning has exploded. This workshop will explore how eXtension CoPs are developing online curricula and educational resources that can be used in on-campus, Ecampus, hybrid, and eXtension learning venues to train undergraduate and graduate students, agricultural professionals, and farmers.
