News from AEDE: A Note from AEDE Chair

As the spring semester comes to a close, I wanted to reach out to our AEDE Alumni with some department news and ways you can connect with virtual campus events. 
From a virtual commencement to our upcoming webinar on Sustainability and Ohio Lands, AEDE faculty, staff, students and alumni continue to engage in life-long learning.
We hope to run into you in the future when we are all back together on campus.

Knowledge Exchange CO-VID 19 Hub and Discussion Forum

  • An online discussion forum for CFAES/OSU Extension faculty and educators to ask questions of their CFAES colleagues, share resources and programming approaches, and offer coping mechanisms for dealing with uncertainty. 
  • A support resource to help identify reliable, science-backed, and defensible sources for COVID-19-related information. Note: The Hub is not intended to be a public site but is designed to facilitate internal discussions between researcher and educators, generate new ideas and solutions and expedite the translation of information.
