eBooks: Adding Interactivity to Text-based Content and Repackaging for Added Mileage

Monday, September 30th at noon EST

Deana Namuth-Covert (OSU) and Amy Kohmetscher (OSU)

Do you have some great extension factsheets or academic course text that has been a good resource for your audience/students, yet you have this nagging feeling that learners are not grasping the take home points very well? Or maybe you would like to repackage materials into an engaging self-learning medium? In this session we will look at two case studies where digital books were created for two undergraduate agronomy courses using the tool “Pressbooks”, in part utilizing other extension resource content along with added instructor content. We will give you the opportunity to explore these two digital book examples and will highlight key interactive elements which are also ADA accessible. We will wrap up by showing you the instructor side of the tool, where the books are created. Click here to register for webinar.

 

 

Engaging Online Audiences

Monday, October 28th at noon EST

Danae Wolfe (OSU) and Ryan Wynkoop (Purdue)

There are many reasons to use audience engagement tools in Extension and academic programming. Whether you want to gather instant feedback during a presentation or check participants’ knowledge before and after the event, there are several tools you can use to simplify the process and make the learning event more meaningful. This presentation will take you beyond simple polling and discuss how an audience engagement tool can be used to teach and develop relationships with participants before, during, and after an event.

What Exactly is an Online “Course” or “Module?”

Friday, November 8th at noon EST

Amy Kohmetscher (OSU) and Ryan Wynkoop (Purdue)

It is easy to think about a “course” only in terms of a semester long learning event we all remember from our own student days. With educational technologies we can now repurpose learning content to meet a wider variety of educational needs that our students and clientele have. We will look at examples from both Purdue and Ohio State University where a face to face extension workshop was converted to an online academic credit course, as well as the opposite where a credit course was converted to online non-credit modules for workforce development. In this session we will also give you the opportunity to login to an example of an online class to sit in the “student seat” and experience the environment from your audience’s perspective.

Accessibility in Extension and Higher Education

Monday, November 18th at noon EST

Megan Fogel (OSU) and Laura Akgerman (OSU)

First half of program: Accessibility of Digital Content
As public institutions, we have a responsibility to create and disseminate content that is accessible to all audiences. Creating accessible content means reducing barriers to content consumption and comprehension. Examples include ensuring that screen readers can easily read written text aloud, assigning alternate text to graphics so they may be appropriately described, and including captions with video content. This portion of the webinar will cover the basics of creating accessible digital content and cover our legal obligations in offering content that is accessible to all audiences.

Second half of program: Accessibility of Physical Spaces
Extension hosts events and trainings all year long, indoors, outdoors, at university venues, and in public and private spaces – field days, workshops, farmer’s markets, county fairs, AgriTourism and more. When planning Extension events, it is important to consider how to make your event accessible to people with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that requires businesses and events to be accessible to everyone, of all abilities. Having accessible entrances, facilities and programs not only benefits the those who have a disability, it also makes businesses and events welcoming to everyone. Providing access is more than getting people through the gate, it also includes advertising, parking, programming, restrooms and more. Click here to register for webinar.

Master Plan Open Forums

You are invited to attend an open forum discussion about CFAES facilities, with a specific focus on the future of our Columbus Mid-West Campus (including Waterman Lab) and Wooster Campus.

Our college along with the Office of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate (PARE) will be working together to develop a CFAES Master Plan during the 2019-2020 academic year. Input from you is essential to ensure the plan represents the many individuals who make up the college.

Two open forums will be held:

  • WOOSTER – Thursday, September 5, 12:00-1:00 pm in the Shisler Center Ballroom – Discussion will focus on Wooster Campus
  • COLUMBUS – Tuesday, October 8, 12:00-1:00 pm in the Agricultural Administration Auditorium – Discussion with focus on Midwest Campus (including Waterman)

Lunch will be provided at each session.

Please use the following link to RSVP: https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_afPr870tRFEASsl

More information about the CFAES Master Plan:
The CFAES Master Plan will establish a college-wide vision that aligns the college’s three campuses, Columbus, Wooster, and Statewide, with our mission and priorities. It will map out facilities investments that are immediate as well as future priorities. In addition to the college-wide vision, the plan will focus in-depth on Waterman, Columbus Mid-West Campus, and the Wooster Campus.

The college and the Office of Planning, Architecture and Real Estate (PARE) will work together to develop this plan. We will be supported by a planning and design team – Ayers Saint Gross and Erdy McHenry – along with a team of other consultants with specialized expertise.

The plan will include a data-driven space needs assessment for the Columbus and Wooster campus only. This will provide an important foundation for the CFAES Master Plan: it will identify areas where we can use our facilities more effectively and suggest areas where new facilities are needed. We are currently gathering extensive data about CFAES employees, students, courses, research, and space to inform this study.

Myra’s Top 5 Strengths are Maximizer, Achiever, Adaptability, Futuristic and Positivity.

Off Duty Pay

Effective July 1, 2019 all Off Duty Pay requests must be submitted on the attached Off Duty Pay Request form and accompanied by an Off Duty Pay calculator. Please note, there is no need to submit the ODP Request form if your ODP request for Summer 2019 has already been submitted and approved.

During the past year, an ODP Taskforce has met to develop a college procedure that would be supplemental to the University’s Off Duty Pay (ODP) policy. The developed procedure provides guidance to faculty and staff on what may or may not be allowable as ODP and will increase consistency across our departments. Currently, we do have consistent use of the ODP calculator and ODP calendar, but this process speaks to the upfront requirements and approvals.

The procedure and documents have been vetted by a focus group of faculty, HR professionals and Fiscal/finance officers. In addition, feedback has been requested from all Chairs and Directors as well as the Vice President’s Cabinet.

These documents can also be found on the CFAES HR website: CFAES Off Duty Pay 1.) A copy of the Off Duty Pay Standard Operating Procedure 2.) Off-Duty Pay Request form 3.) Off-Duty Pay Calendar 4.) Off-Duty Pay Calculator 5.) Off-Duty Pay FAQs for this process.

Insights on relationship-rich center experiences in learning and teaching to be highlighted at the 2019 CFAES Teaching and Learning Symposium (Aug 13)

Noted higher education author and researcher Peter Felten, Elon University, will serve as the keynote presenter at the 2019 CFAES Teaching & Learning Symposium: Teaching Today’s Learners. Dr. Felten has an impressive record of publications focused on the learning experiences in higher education to his credit, including: The Undergraduate Experience: Focusing Institutions on What Matters Most (Jossey-Bass, 2016); Transforming Students: Fulfilling the Promise of Higher Education (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014); Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching (Jossey-Bass, 2014); and the co-edited book Intersectionality in Action (Stylus, 2016).

At the Teaching Today’s Learner Symposium Peter will be presenting Relationships matter: Moving relationship-rich experiences to the center of learning and teaching. He will be sharing his insights and findings on how decades of rigorous research documents corroborate the value and power of relationship-rich learning in higher education. These experiences can occur in many formats and locations, including active learning exercises in a lecture hall, team-based work in a community setting, and mentored research in a laboratory. Relational pedagogies contribute to everything from enhanced disciplinary learning to a clarified sense of purpose, and these positive outcomes have long-term professional, civic, and personal significance for graduates. Yet too often we do not focus our teaching and other work with students on relationship-rich learning experiences. In this interactive session, we will explore the possibility of centering our teaching practices on the power of student-student, faculty-student, and community-student relationships to motivate and deepen learning.

Join your CFAES colleagues at the 2019 Teaching & Learning Symposium on August 13th to hear and reflect upon Peter’s assessment on this impactful topic. If you have yet to do so, register for the symposium today at:http://go.osu.edu/CFAES_2019-TLSymposium

Traveler Assistance Group (TAG Team)

The CFAES Finance Office has formed a Traveler Assistance Group (TAG Team) to improve customer service for travel approvals and reimbursements. The TAG Team consists of fiscal and administrative support staff to liaison as informational resources for both travelers and the CFAES Service Center. The Service Center will offer ongoing roundtable discussions and trainings. Topics include travel policy, insight of standardized operating procedures, OSU Travel Office initiatives, Workday communications and updates, and eTravel and Concur system user training.

Background
In the past year, CFAES Finance has received customer feedback related to overall dissatisfaction with business travel processing standards. Items cited were travel reimbursement turnaround time, lack of understanding of travel roles, convoluted and changing policies and procedures, and inconsistent messaging and communication.

On average, it took 36 days after a traveler returned from a trip to get payment requests to the service center, and 14 business days for the service center to complete a reimbursement without errors. However, 52% of requests contained errors such as missing documentation or miscalculated amounts.

Goals of TAG Team

  • Improve overall end-to-end customer service for the college’s business travelers.
  • Decrease reimbursement processing time.
  • Minimize errors on travel reimbursements submitted for processing.
  • Customize University and CFAES communications for specific units or groups of travelers.
  • Prepare for the arrival of Workday in July 2020.

TAG Team Sessions:
Monthly sessions began in April. Joe Tobias, Ellie Hoskins and Zac Cooperrider of the Service Center lead these sessions. Members of TAG Team can attend in-person, with Zoom, or on the phone.

Appointees:
Fiscal Officers have appointed over 70 support staff to be on the TAG Team.

May CFAES Equity and Inclusion Workshops

Identity, Power, and Privilege
What does it mean to have privilege? How do your social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, religion, sexuality, etc.) grant or deny you privilege? How do you know when you have it and when you don’t? How can we use power and privilege to break the cycle of oppression? This workshop will explore these questions, offering participants an opportunity to delve deeply into their social identities by creating a Multiple Social Identity Profile – a process that reveals how we all have and lack privilege simultaneously. Participants will begin to uncover sources of bias that have been reinforced by an unrelenting cycle of socialization, develop skills for effective allyship, and learn how taking even the smallest of steps toward equity, inclusion, and justice can transform an individual into an agent of change in their communities and profession.

This workshop is free and open to all CFAES faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students on a first come basis. Cap: 30 participants.
Light refreshments will be provided.

Facilitator:
Dr. Leo Taylor, Program Director for Equity and Inclusion, College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences

Offerings:
Columbus – May 10th
(registration deadline May 6th), 9:00AM-12:00PM, Location: 4-H Center Eastman Room
Wooster – May 24th (registration deadline May 20th), 1:00PM-4:00PM, Location: 126 Research Services
Registration: CFAES_May_Workshop_Power and Privilege

Here is a quote from a participant who attended this workshop in February:
“I was a little hesitant about attending the class – recognizing that I am part of the “privileged” group. I appreciated the fact that I was not “made” or “encouraged” to feel guilty about my place in the system. It was a very safe environment that enabled some very open dialogue on some difficult topics. I also benefited greatly by the open discussion of experiences by the folks of color who attended the training. I have been to many trainings on a variety of topics, and this was one of the very best in terms of preparation, organization, delivery, content and audience engagement.”
