There many ways to get involved with the Field and Fork program as a faculty member!  We have ways to work with you to offer experiential learning from field to plate!

Faculty Fellows Program

The Faculty Fellows program is designed to provide support for faculty interested in incorporating experiential learning into their teaching program. It is also intended to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration for course development or enhancement. For 2016-2017 we awarded 6 faculty from across campus a $1500 stipend to develop or redesign a course that is focused around sustainable agriculture or food systems to include experiential learning as a core component.   To learn more, see our program page.

 

Classes

The Farm and Gardens offer space for hands-on and project-based learning for your class. Whether you are looking for a one-time field trip to demonstrate a concept or want your students to explore a topic or system in the field throughout the semester, we can help you achieve your goals. We can also help you explore other resources for experiential learning about food systems and connect you to community partners with an interest in service learning. For more information on course support, email Anna Prizzia – aprizzia@ufl.edu.

 

Research

The Field and Fork Program is primarily focused on teaching and student research, and has spaces for students to develop independent research projects.  We also have opportunities for internships for credit and supervised extension.  Our program itself also offers interesting opportunities for faculty and graduate research. We are also open to new ideas and ways to collaborate! If you have an idea feel free to email Anna Prizzia at aprizzia@ufl.edu.
