Utilizing Social Media for Food, Ag, and Natural Resource Science

The convergence of multiple forms of media – newspaper, video, radio, and photojournalism – on the internet is impacting how we communicate complicated scientific issues related to topics such as food safety, agricultural production, and good stewardship of natural resources, and social media have been found to play a critical role in shaping science literacy. Because of the increasing presence of social media in our everyday lives, ag, food, and natural resource professionals are challenged with how to best package these complex scientific topics to increase science literacy through social media networks. This course aims to provide students who possess a strong background and understanding of food, agriculture and natural resource sciences with the skills needed to communicate these complex topics to audiences across social media platforms.
