Grant will improve digital learning in agronomy

Dr. Amanda Skidmore, assistant professor of agronomy at Morehead State, was recently awarded a grant to enhance the use of digital technology in one of her classes.

The $2,000 grant from Course Hero will help students in Skidmore’s AGR 300-Soils class to create digital learning tools. According to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (OSRP), students will design educational tools, including infographics, podcasts and videos, that will help educate their peers and future students who take the course. The grant funds will pay for a computer, microphones and design software for students to use for the project.

Course Hero Teaching Grants are provided by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest nonprofit, private scholarship organization. To learn more, visit https://scholarshipamerica.org.
