Abstract

The use of engagement teaching and learning methods was employed as an alternative method to teach decision-making and implementing emergency spill response plans in contrast to traditional lecture. By offering participatory learning, producers can refine and hone decision-making skills, and measure responses against peers and an expert panel. Conversations become two-way and not traditional lecturer and listener. The attendees also have the chance to discuss and exchange ideas with fellow attendees. The implications are a better-prepared audience to deal with emergency response to manure spills and furthermore to protect surface waters.
