Animal Science Faculty Featured in CFANS eLearning Showcase
About 40 faculty and staff attended the first annual CFANS eLearning Showcase on October 25 in the Borlaug Commons. Associate Dean Michael White welcomed eight presenters and various university resource staff to share eLearning practices that have invigorated their teaching and contributed to student learning. Among the presenters were faculty members Krishona Martinson and Marshall Stern, as well as graduate student and extension educator Abby Neu. Below are the topic titles of their presentations:
- Developing online courses for undergraduates and adult learners – Dr. Krishona Martinson
- Challenges in developing an online version of a highly interactive in-class companion animal nutrition course – Dr. Marshall Stern
- Undergraduate learning gains and student satisfaction of online vs in-person animal science courses - Abby Neu

Plans are underway to create another event in which participants will learn how to increase the visibility of university resources, such as the Center for Educational Innovation and the Academic Technology Support Services.
