283 Soil Science Education Trends for the 21st Century: I

Oral Session
S05 Pedology As a largely field-based discipline, Soil Science programs are universally facing challenges in providing valuable and relevant knowledge-transfer to the next generation of natural resource management professionals. As concerns are raised about our capability to provide enough food for the increasing world population and on-going issues of soil degradation, Soil Science programs must adapt to effectively deliver solid and relevant foundational knowledge of the soil resource. This topic includes the following subjects: 1) Current approaches to soils and natural resources education; 2) Emerging trends and examples of innovative methods and learning technologies; and 3) Student perspectives on soil science education.
