Abstract or Summary
  • Continuing education workshops and shortcourses are playing an increasingly important role in the education of forest resource professionals. The “tug-of-war” between breadth and depth in undergraduate curricula, combined with pressure to reduce the number of credit hours required for graduation, create knowledge gaps in various disciplines. Workshops and shortcourses help to fill this gap by providing up-to-date information on specific topics pertinent to maintaining professional competence as well as professional registration or certification. We discuss the opportunities and limitations of teaching continuing education courses, especially those with a heavy field emphasis, based on our experiences with the hardwood workshop series taught by faculty at Mississippi State University (MSU) and colleagues. The key to developing a workshop or shortcourse is organization and preparation. In this paper, we review the planning process and conduct in the MSU hardwood workshops.
