Engaging Students in Wicked Problems: Strategies for inspiring and preparing students to tackle messy, place-based challenges

1:00 pm EDT

Please join the Capacity Building Work Team in the Children and Youth Institute at Michigan State University Extension for the following webinar featuring Dr. Danielle Lake from Grand Valley State University – Engaging Students in Wicked Problems: Strategies for inspiring and preparing students to tackle messy, place-based challenges.

How can we prepare students to tackle wicked problems?  What pedagogical methods can be used to address interdependent, high-stakes systemic problems in our communities?

This webinar will suggest we need to pursue an experiential, collaborative learning model: working across networks, disciplines, and institutions in order to tackle our social messes. Participants will discover strategies and explore possible methods for better preparing students to collaboratively tackle the wicked problems within their field.

This webinar will take place on July 8 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time. All are welcome to attend.

Pinning with a Purpose

11:00 am EDT

How would you like the potential of reaching 70 million people with your Extension message…from your computer? The answer: Begin to Pin!

Henneman will present on how to Pin more effectively, focusing on strategies related to image sizes and types, Pin categories and descriptions, board covers and board placement, sharing boards, using hashtags to track pins, and scheduling Pins in advance. Henneman will also share how to add “Follow” or “Pin It” buttons and Pinterest widgets to a website or blog.

Did you know ... people are starting to use Pinterest as a search engine and the number of men on Pinterest is growing?

"We doubled our male user base in the U.S. this year," Pinterest says. "Last year our male user base in the U.S. grew 73% year over year, and has been picking up in the past 6 months (54%) vs. the prior 6 months (40%), which is outpacing overall Pinterest growth."

Ag, the environment, and lawn/garden, are just some of the things beyond food & family that Extension is pinning.
