Freshman/Sophomore Seminar Depicts Systems Approaches to Agricultural Problems

Attention: open in a new window. Print

 

Abstract:

The course reported here is an offspring of the National Agricultural and Natural Resources Curriculum Project, Food and Agricultural Systems Task Group. Topics discussed in the course included learning styles and problem solving, systems approaches to problem solving in agriculture, and a case study involving a Saturday field trip. The students who participated in this small class benefitted from the experiential learning process and developed an understanding of the relevance of a holistic systems approach to problem situations. Reflections on this new learning experience, from the viewpoint of the course facilitators, are shared in this report.
