Preface & Acknowledgments

These Educational Modules offer images and documentation necessary for educators to integrate the concepts of high tunnel technology into their unique courses, in their particular geographical area, from their own perspective, and with knowledge of their students needs. Modules will be available to serve a variety of multi-media and educational niches, including digital images, digital video clips, and case studies that could be incorporated as short segments into courses that are already taught as a part of horticulture curricula. Examples of courses include Greenhouse Management, Vegetable Production, Fruit Production, and Floriculture Production.

The introductory module would be appropriate for baseline information about any of the other modules. Often, but not always an image, diagram, chart or other visual aid will serve to illustrate main points. Once you click on the image, a larger image will appear in a separate window for a closer view along with a caption that provides more information. By right clicking anywhere on the image, many download options will be listed.

While these Educational Modules are flexible with regard to how they can be used, one scenario for their use is downloading the images and aids to a PowerPoint presentation. For example, the main point could be presented as a bullet point on the screen with the image included. As the instructor, you would be able to expand on the issue further with information provided in the caption to the photo found in the module.

We would like to express our appreciation to Ted Carey and Laurie Hodges for the review of the content of this material. In addition a special thanks to Ted Carey, Jane Drake, Laurie Hodges, Lewis Jett, Dan Nagengast and Sorkel Kadir for sharing their pictures, time, and expertise.

These materials are not copyrighted and are produced with the intention of being free and reproducible.

The listserv is a great place to learn what growers are doing with high tunnels, what crops and varieties do best, and what practices have been successful on local farms.
