Student Podcast: Agricultural Communications
This fall, Bachelor of Science in Agriculture student Bianca Taillefer produced a podcast episode as part of the EDRD 3050 Agricultural Communication course. Bianca worked with fellow honours agriculture major student James Mpofu to produce, record and edit the podcast.
The podcast episode (which you can listen to here) focuses on irrigation systems in Zimbabwe. Bianca interviews Prof. John FitzSimons, School of Environmental Design and Rural Development, and James Mpofu, who also farms in Zimbabwe.
The Agricultural Communications course provides third and fourth year students with practical and effective ways of communicating agricultural information to a broad audience via the media. Strong emphasis is placed on writing and preparing ready-to-use material and strategies for getting it published.
