Using a Collaborative Framework To Develop a Successful Succession Planning Curriculum

12:30 pm EDT

Families own 1.3 million of Minnesota's woodlands or about 5.3 million acres. As the owners age, the ownership of this land will change. This change may result in parcelization and fragmentation of woodlands resulting in the loss of economies of scale for timber harvest and loss of ecological values. One approach to keeping working woodlands working is to assist families transfer ownership to the next generation. This transition involves family communication and working through a process that involves different family members perceptions of the lands value and utility. The Minnesota Intergenerational Land Transfer Program focuses on family communication, transfer of the management goals and legal aspects of land transfer using an approach that involves multi-generations within a family unit. This collaborative process will be described using a collaborative curriculum framework.

In this webinar, we will engage participants in a discussion about the University of Minnesota's forest landowner transfer curriculum and teaching process. This curriculum provides an example of how the collaborative learning framework can aid in curriculum design. We will explore how the curriculum might be modified, improved and used in your educational programs.

This is not your typical webinar! Rather than attendees passively watching presenters, this will be a fully interactive learning event where attendees will engage with presenters as well as other attendees with live audio and video. Use this test link from Zoom to test your systems ability to connect to the meeting interactively. In addition to polls, come prepared to share your thoughts about your curriculum with your colleagues via Zoom Breakrooms. Review the collaborative curriculum framework prior to the webinar and be prepared to discuss how your curriculum fits or does not fit the collaborative curriculum framework.
