113 On-Line Education in Soil Science: I

Oral Session
S05 Pedology

Presentations in this session will focus on on-line soil science courses that are presently being offered or are under development at various universities. These courses are probably quite varied in nature. Therefore, it is necessary for the session to cross-list multiple Divisions of Soil Science. This session will outline the scope of on-line teaching in Soil Science, and could lay the groundwork for a major symposium for the 2011 Meetings.


A01 Resident Education, Soil Physics, Soil Chemistry, Soil Fertility & Plant Nutrition, Pedology, Wetland Soils
