  • Plant Breeding Graduate Student Community
    Jamie Sherman jsherman@montana.edu
    Growing the Future With the loss of plant breeding positions in the public sector, there has been a loss of the infrastructure that supports plant breeding training, including a reduction in professors with plant breeding expertise, a critical mass of students often too low to provide a stimulating learning environment, and the inability to offer courses with sufficient audience. Although studies support the positive impact of a strong community on learning, currently, students are often trained in isolation.  The PBTN has been established to mitigate isolation barriers that currently limit plant breeding education at most institutions and in most plant breeding work places around the world.  PBTN supports online course sharing (See list of courses).  The PBTN online graduate student community  is a place for students around the world to make contact with other plant breeding students, providing an opportunity  to exchange ideas, develop interpersonal skills (such as communication and collaboration) and build a plant breeding student community. If you have questions about the community, graduate work in plant breeding, or career oportunities, please contact us.  Jamie Sherman Director-TCAP graduate community and PBTN jsherman@montana.edu   Mary Brakke Director-TCAP undergraduate community brakk001@umn.edu   Deana Namuth-Covert Director-Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN) dcovert2@unl.edu     This community is funded by the Triticeae CAP project.

  • Sustainable Agriculture Models in the Midwest
    Instructor: Chuck Francis
    Established with the aid of a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) grant, this project was created to offer insight into what sustainability within agriculture actually looks like. Spread across eastern Nebraska, ten different farming operations are featured across the twenty different videos. Each farmer was interviewed by a high school student from a nearby school about what their operation does, how and why they choose to manage it in a certain way, and what makes it sustainable as well as what would make it more sustainable. Each video is accompanied by a short document including an overview of the operation, teaching objectives, and several questions to foster classroom discussion. Context specific modules were created encompassing the concept of sustainability as defined by social, economic, environmental factors. These additional modules pull information from across the different farmers to illustrate an overarching concept. It is our belief that creating modules exploring these three areas will increase appeal to educators outside of vocational agriculture departments. Business classes could easily incorporate the module on Niche Marketing or Biology classes the module on Soil Health. Our belief is that the true value of this tool lies in its locality. Resources for sustainable agriculture curricula are readily accessible with a quick Internet search, but few offer the added benefit of being directly applicable to the classroom’s region. These videos bring the farmer from the field into the classroom to enhance a segment of valuable, already packed class time with ease--providing instructors with the ability to connect course concepts to a real, regional farmer. The goal is not to substitute school to farm visits, but to facilitate an easier, less time-intensive alternative to readily supplement daily course material. Discussion documents that compliment each video provide contact information for the farmers to open up the possibility for taking the process a step further and bringing the classroom out to the farm. A deeper discussion may ensue following an introductory discussion based upon the provided video segments. Further, promotion of the cross-disciplinary potential of the videos will broaden the audience of students being exposed to alternative systems of agriculture and illustrate the relatedness of agriculture to every subject.
