What Does Learning Mean to You? – An NDSU Extension Critical Conversation

Recently the NDSU Extension Innovation Team had a lively discussion about the Journal of Extension article, “Redefining the Concept of Learning in Cooperative Extension." The team wanted to create a space for NDSU Extension Service faculty and staff join the conversation and talk about:

  • How do you define “learning”?
  • Is learning about retaining information?
  • Is it about applying knowledge, or is it something else entirely?

Here are some of the resources that were shared in the conversation.

Tech Coffee Break - August 7, 2017

Our theme for the August Tech Coffee Break was "potpourri," a chance for participants to bring up whatever they wanted to. The conversation ended up centering on video.

Marissa Leier from Oliver County talked about their nitrate testing video which has gotten considerable traction in Facebook.

We talked about downloading video from Facebook, using microphones when capturing smartphone video and survey response tools like PollEverywhere.
