Greetings TeachAg Rockstars,


The Iowa State University Ag 450 Farm (@ISUAg450Farm) is excited to partner with the Penn State Agricultural Extension and Education cohort (@TeachAgPSU) in hosting a #TeachAgChat. Please join us as we discuss the application of experiential learning on Thursday, April 7th at 8:00 pm EST.


The questions for the chat include:

Q1. How do you interpret experiential learning within your discipline?

Q2. How do you facilitate reflective observation in your EL activities?

Q3. What are some specific EL activities you have used in your program?

Q4. What resources would help you make your EL activities more successful?

Q5. Is there any role within the ERP you find particularly challenging? Explain.

Q6. What role within the ERP do you feel most efficacious in and why?

Q7. How will you use the information shared in tonight’s #TeachAgChat?


**EL = Experiential Learning** **ERP = Educator Role Profile**
