Tignor Gives Invited Talk on Online-Education Resources for Greenhouse Science

Buddy Tignor was an invited speaker at the 2006 OFA Short Course in Columbus, OH. The OFA Short Course is recognized as the premier educational and trade show event in North America. The 2006 OFA Short Course will be the 76th event – featuring nearly 1,330 trade show booths, approximately 500 exhibiting companies, and more than 130 educational sessions. It will attract an estimated 10,000 floriculture professionals to Columbus, Ohio.

The OFA Short Course is the best place each year to get your own worldwide perspective on floriculture. Attendees come to the OFA Short Course from throughout the United States and more than 20 foreign countries. They come to view the latest products and equipment, find answers to business problems, learn new skills, catch up with old friends, and network with industry leaders. The first Ohio Florist Short Course was held in January 1930.
These are some of the slides presented during Buddy's talk on an educational resource developed by several particpating colleges including The University of Vermont, University of Florida, The Ohio State University, and The University of Arizona. Buddy continues efforts on this project at Haywood Community College and will use many of the materials developed by this national team in his on-line offering of the two greenhouse courses in the Horticulture Technology Program.
