Considerations for the use of Manure Irrigation Practices

From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on Jun 18, 2018.

Manure irrigation is the practice of applying livestock manure to fields using irrigation equipment. In response to concerns about this practice, University of Wisconsin Extension convened a workgroup to examine the issues. The workgroup, composed of scientists, public health specialists, state agency experts, farmers, conservationists and others, spent over two years gathering and reviewing scientific information on the practice and developing their report, which includes findings, responses and recommendations. The workgroup assessed concerns associated with manure irrigation, including droplet drift, odor, water quality, air quality and airborne pathogens. They also explored potential benefits related to the timing of manure applications, road safety and reduced road damage, and other farm management and economic benefits. Join the webinar to learn more about their results and implications.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Ken Genskow, University of Wisconsin‐Madison
  • Rebecca Larson, University of Wisconsin‐Madison
  • Tucker Burch, USDA-ARS in Marshfield, Wisconsin
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.

    Detour Ahead: Planning for Contingencies on Your Caregiving Journey

    From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on Jun 15, 2018.

    To receive Continuing Education (CE) credit or a certificate of completion, please go to: https://vte.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7X6buRIsU9qjaHH 

    Like many things in life, caregiving is a journey, not a destination. Even the best laid plans – or map, if you will – have unintended obstacles and barriers resulting in a change of direction. While the caregiver cannot anticipate every scenario, there are some common issues that caregivers may be able to anticipate. Too, knowing there may be detours ahead may be able to help the caregiver better cope when problems arise. This session will explore some common issues in caregiving and provide some tips for when these detours occur. We will also discuss some critical thinking/decision-making skills that can help caregivers take apart and analyze unanticipated detours.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Describe elements of a care contingency plan
    • Identify decision-making frameworks for responding to contingencies
    • Apply decision-making frameworks to common caregiving scenarios

        About this Webinar

        This 90-minute webinar addresses the determinants of mental health treatment seeking among military personnel and interventions to increase the percentage of military personnel seeking treatment. Determinants of treatment seeking address both barriers and facilitators. Barriers include such factors as the perceived stigma associated with harm to one’s career and differential treatment by fellow service members, negative attitudes toward mental health treatment, not having enough time to work treatment into a busy schedule, and a preference for handling problems oneself. Facilitators of treatment seeking include the support of family and friends, leaders, and unit members, positive attitudes toward mental health treatment, and a recognition that symptoms are interfering with performance and relationships. Interventions to reduce barriers and increase facilitators of treatment seeking are discussed, including emphasizing mental health treatment as a mechanism for increasing resilience, modifications to the number and duration of treatment sessions, and increasing supportive behaviors by fellow unit members for helping service members receive and remain in treatment.

        Multiple Daily Injections (MDI),
        has given the diabetic more control over their life and their diabetes. People with diabetes no longer are forced to eat meals at certain times.

Diabetics who take care of monitoring their levels and adjusting their insulin can enjoy more flexibility in their meals. Tune into this webinar to help your patients/clients understand MDI and better monitor their diabetes.

        Learning Objectives:
        After this presentation, the attendee should be able to:
        1.     Identify at least 2 types of basal insulin and 2 types of bolus insulin used for MDI therapy

        From Communication to Conversations: Expanding Language Development in the Early Childhood Years

        From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on Jun 11, 2018.

        Children’s language use grows dramatically throughout the toddler and preschool years. Words and phrases expand daily and children begin to form sentences that go beyond sharing their preferences. Their speech sounds continue to develop and include both predictable, and sometimes adorable, error patterns.  Pre-literacy skills also emerge during this developmental window and lay the foundation for academic success as children approach elementary school. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss decontextualized language, early developing morphemes, timelines for phonological processes, and preliteracy achievements during the preschool years as well as when to worry that a child's speech and language doesn't seem to be progressing as expected.

        Objectives:

        • List the four key early developing morphemes that allow toddlers to make sentences  
        • Understand decontextualized language and why it is an important milestone in a toddler's development
        • Explain three common phonological processes and indicators for concern related to a child's speech
        • Describe three major preliteracy achievements preschoolers master and why these skills help support later reading abilities

        How to obtain CECs:

        • This FD Early Intervention webinar offers CE credits through the Early Intervention Training Program (EITP) at the University of Illinois for providers in Illinois. To learn more about EITP, go to https://eitp.education.illinois.edu/
        • The following states have agreed to recognize the CE credits we offer:  Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia, and for service coordinators in Washington.
        • Our team is actively pursuing CE credits in additional states.  Please check back periodically for updates.

        Writing About Research: Think Clarity!

        From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on Jun 11, 2018.

        The key to communication is clarity. Yet many authors struggle with clearly conveying methodologies, findings, and relevant implications when crafting research briefs or other types of scholarly manuscripts. This webinar focuses on strategies for avoiding common clarity-related issues in scholarly writing—from obvious problems such as inadequate organization to more subtle errors such as impreciseness of language and omitted punctuation.

        Although this session has a specific focus to the eXtension Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps the content may be applicable and interesting to others who are welcome to join.

        Opportunities & Possibilities: Posttraumatic Growth in Research and Practice (Part 1)

        From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on Jun 08, 2018.

        Webinar Description

        In this presentation, Richard Tedeschi, Ph.D. will discuss the theoretical model and research basis of posttraumatic growth, the process by which trauma survivors often find valuable changes in how they live life in the aftermath of trauma. He will outline a framework for therapeutic interventions that facilitate posttraumatic growth through a way of relating called expert companionship. This approach to practice incorporates a broad view of what constitutes trauma, including many experiences that are not typically considered traumatic in our current diagnostic system, but which are traumatic to people because they challenge core beliefs about oneself, other people, the future, and the kind of world in which we live. The attention paid to possibilities for transformation of individuals and their relationships does not preclude working on typical symptoms of trauma, but recognizes that symptoms are better understood, tolerated, and reduced when traumatic suffering can have meaning and purpose.



        Presenter

        Richard G. Tedeschi received his B.A. in Psychology from Syracuse University, his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Ohio University, and completed his Clinical Psychology Internship at The University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Dr. Tedeschi is Professor of Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he teaches personality and psychotherapy, and serves as Graduate Coordinator for the MA Psychology program. He is a Licensed Psychologist specializing in bereavement and trauma. With his colleague Lawrence Calhoun, he has published books on posttraumatic growth, an area of research that they have developed that examines personal transformations in the aftermath of traumatic life events. Their most recent book is Posttraumatic Growth in Clinical Practice (2013). Dr. Tedeschi serves as a consultant to the American Psychological Association on trauma and resilience, and as a subject matter expert for the US Army’s Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Program. He is a recipient of the Mary G. Clarke Award for Distinguished Service to Psychology given by the North Carolina Psychological Association and is past President of NCPA.

          This is a free webinar hosted by the Personal Finance concentration area of the Military Families Learning Network.

          eXtension Technologies--Looking to the Future

          From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on May 23, 2018.

          As eXtension grows the Impact Collaborative, it continues to offer technology that supports its members and the Cooperative Extension Service. We are upgrading our tools in ways that will ensure the future of content for communities of practice (CoPs), and provide CoPs greater flexibility and control of their content.  It also expands our services to other multi-institutional teams of Extension educators as well as ECOP projects which need a neutral web presence to communicate their work.  As eXtension has changed its focus toward the Impact Collaborative and equipping Extension educators to make a more visible and measurable local impact, the tools it provides to its members and to the Cooperative Extension Service are being upgraded for increased flexibility and efficiency.

          During this webinar, we will not only address technical details of this upgrade and what CoPs might wish to do as part of it, but also plan to demonstrate a representative CoP website and what this web presence can contribute to the work of these teams.

          Understanding Ag Research Tool Package for Extension Educators- 2017 NC ANR Academy

          From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on May 21, 2018.

          Agriculture research is a vital part of an ever-changing industry. As extension professionals, we often present or provide applied research data to audiences who have not been trained in statistics or research interpretation. In an effort to improve basic research interpretation among agriculture producers, a team of extension professionals involved in the 2017 North Central Agriculture and Natural Resources Academy created fact sheets, short video clips, slide show presentations, a resource page, and a post presentation survey that focus on "Understanding Ag Research " using four main topics:
          • Replication and Randomization
          • Setting up On-Farm Trials
          • Understanding the LSD
          • Identifying Quality Research
          This tool package includes four fact sheets for producer distribution and video clips (to serve as online resources for farmers or educators). Additionally, long and short PowerPoint slideshows that can be used either prior to presenting research information to an audience, or presented as a stand-alone topic are included. A resource page is also provided that lists additional resources regarding research interpretation and related topics. A follow-up participant survey for the use of anyone presenting any portion of this resource package is included.

          This webinar will provide a brief preview of each educational piece and an explanation of its intended purpose and accessibility platform. This project was created as a part of the 2017 North Central ANR Cropping Systems Academy.

          Animal Manure’s Impact on Soil Properties

          From eXtension Professional Development Sessions. Published on May 21, 2018.

          Many times, discussions center on managing manure nitrogen and phosphorus in soil/crop systems. This webinar will focus on the relationships of land applied livestock manure and other organic materials to soil aggregation, resistance to erosion and microbial dynamics in consideration of field characteristics. The implications of cellulose and lignin content of the applied organic material will be addressed. Additionally, we will look at a comprehensive literature review conducted about the effect of manure application on soil properties. The webinar will focus on effects that go beyond manure's capability to provide NPK to crops, such as nutrient cycling and soil physical and biological properties. We will also provide recommendations for future research related to manure and soil.

          An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

          Presenters for this webinar include:
          • Linda Schott, University of Nebraska
          • Charles Wortmann, University of Nebraska
          Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.
