Healthy Yards for Clear Streams- Spring 2021
Agriculture & Environment
The course is organized in seven modules. We will kick things off on February 23 where participants not familiar with Extension’s online learning format will be given a brief orientation and receive materials for the first module. The module contains short, pre-recorded videos on the week’s subject, along with a self-assessment quiz, and a simple assignment. There will also be a discussion forum so participants can ask questions as they come to mind during the week as they view the videos or work on their assignment.
Then on the following Tuesday, March 2, there will be a live "Ask the Expert" Zoom session where the presenter answers questions posted in the forum as well as any others participants might bring to the evening. The session will be recorded and made available for those unable to attend.
The following day, you will be given materials for the next module and the process repeats until the final live Zoom session on April 13.
