Profiling Undergraduate Soil Science Education in Canada

Members of our committee have been involved in several recent initiatives:
  • In 2018, we carried out a survey of professionals and managers who recruit, supervise, or work directly with soil science professionals, with a goal to gather feedback regarding the application of soil science knowledge and field skills in the areas of agriculture, environment, forestry, and/or resource management.
  • In 2017, we completed a study of Canadian post-secondary units that offer introductory soil science courses, documenting attributes of instructors, students, and teaching approaches in these courses. The findings of this study are published in:
    Krzic, M., T. Yates, A. Diochon, M. Swalow, N. Basiliko, and M. Pare. 2018. Introductory soils courses: a frontier of soil science education in Canada. Canadian Journal of Soil Science 98:343-356. https://doi.org/10.1139/cjss-2018-0006

    You can find the survey questions here.

  • In 2015-2016, we carried out an inventory of soil science course offerings at Canadian universities and colleges; the findings of this inventory are published in:
    Diochon, A., N. Basiliko, M. Krzic, T.T. Yates, E. Olson, J. Masse, B. Amiro, and D. Kumaragamage. 2017. Profiling undergraduate soil science education in Canada: Status and projected trends. Canadian Journal of Soil Science 97(2): 122-132. https://doi.org/10.1139/cjss-2016-0058
