Please join us for the first session of the Breakfast Series: Conversations on Online Pedagogy and Best Practices of the academic year. Presenting Behind the Scenes with the ProMS Program, Pattie McNiel, Academic Specialist in the National Food Safety & Toxicology Center will chair a panel of faculty discussing the trials, successes and lessons learned in developing the interdisciplinary Professional Master of Science (ProMS) Program in Food Safety.
The program is the first of its kind in the nation and enables companies to retain their best and brightest employees while they work on an advanced degree. Faculty will share some of their teaching methods and technologies they have employed to provide students with a meaningful and connected educational experience. This session is certain to provide a wealth of information for faculty, administrators and staff interested in the program development process and online teaching practices.
