Wow, it has been a while. The start of the quarter. Those words breathe fear into every faculty member. Not only does it mean frantic course prep, but students in and out of your office trying to get scheudles lined up and colleauges wanting to start on those projects you put off last qurter. I am happy to report it hasn’t gone bad, just franticly. I have been trying to get some research articles out to our ACE conference. My master’s student and I have done an interesting piece looking at student published agriculture magazines in ag communication curriculum. There are a few out there, and they vary as much as the schools do. I am working on a new professional website. I will share it when it is done.
I have started our first ag comm web design course here at OSU. It is going great! We are not only learning Dreamweaver, but we are jumping full board into exploring best practices of Web 2.0. Students even have an opportunity to do a YouTube promo video for the major. I hope they take me up on it (it is for extra credit).
