Educational research was conducted to compare the use of various instructional strategies to teach integrated topics in an on-line course using contextual learning. Since this course will be in an on-line format taught in multiple sections, thousands of students could potentially take the course in the next ten years. Agricultural Biotechnology or Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Biotechnology is an undergraduate Agriculture course. (Extension Education & Rural Sociology), M.Sc.

Dr. Elizabeth Wilson and Kevin Curry plan to attend and submit a paper to the American Association for Agricultural Education to be held May 24-27, 2010 in Omaha Nebraska. Science majors will benefit from the course by learning scientific concepts in an interdisciplinary format. Deadline for applications is 22 January 2013. This technical meeting focuses on sharing national regulatory good practices and lessons learned in the food safety assessment process with a view to strengthening the capacities and understanding of less experienced countries with regard to GM food safety assessment. We also hope that by offering the course three times, instead of two times as originally proposed, more students will have the opportunity to take the course and lab. This requires an integrated approach towards the use and management of biotechnology so that science and regulations can co-evolve and society can benefit from modern biotechnology. This theoretical and practical course is organized by the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA) on behalf of the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB). Worked examples and practical sessions will involve the evaluation of hypothetical case studies. In addition as planned in the original proposal Dr. Elizabeth Wilson, Dr. Chad Jordan and Dr. Char Farin plan to attend the NACTA convention next summer to report and disseminate findings and to attend the USDA principal investigator's meeting. Since the majority of the students who enrolled in this course have been agricultural education majors we believe that by using student centered teaching strategies we are modeling effective teaching for these future teachers.
