National Distance Learning Week

National Distance Learning Week is all about celebrating distance learners like you. This year, we're highlighting some of our distance students and surprising our online faculty with their award for AgOnline Teacher of the Year during a promotional video for National Distance Learning Week. Watch the videos below to see their reaction and stay connected with AgOnline!

AgOnline Teacher of the Year

Each year, AgOnline students are given the opportunity to nominate their online instructors for the AgOnline Teacher of the Year award sponsored by the Brenton Center.  The criteria are based on evidence of commitment to online education, outstanding teaching, innovative course design and delivery, and contributions to online teaching.  This year two (2) of CALS faculty have met the student’s criteria.  Dr. Thomas Brumm, Associate Professor, Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering, and Dr. Kathleen Delate, Professor, Horticulture, will share this honor.  Both of these faculty are making a difference in the courses they teach.  Their dedication, work ethic, and expertise combine to help their departments and the college deliver innovative, quality courses that serve students at a distance.  Congratulations Drs. Brumm and Delate.
