Seminar: Dr. Laura Christianson

Defining scholarship as a faculty extension specialist: A water quality case study
January 31, 2024 3:30- 4:30 pm

Soils 415 and Zoom

Dr. Laura Christianson was an associate professor of water quality and faculty extension specialist at the University of Illinois before joining SWAC as a Researcher 7 in Fall 2023. In this seminar, she will reflect on her experiences defining the concept of scholarship in extension from her context of agricultural water quality. This seminar is relevant for faculty with extension appointments (e.g., why does no one understand what I do?), teaching-oriented faculty (e.g., what do faculty extension specialists even do?), and other extension partners (e.g., how can we understand each other better?). Please join Dr. Christianson to lean-in to one of her favorite mission areas of our land grant university.
