The International Grains Program is excited to announce its first online flour milling short course.
The Introduction to Flour Milling online course will be delivered over a six-week period from October 31, 2011 to December 9, 2011.
The Flour Milling course, which is conducted by IGP, will consist of 12 hour-long prerecorded lectures presented by Mark Fowler, IGP's associate director and technical milling specialist and his co-instructor Chris Miller, KSU-Buhler instructor of milling. This course will be delivered via Kansas State University's online learning platform, K-State Pro. Brandi Miller, IGP's distance education program coordinator, will facilitate the technological aspects of the course.
According to Fowler, "Lecture content-wise, the online course is comparable to our introductory milling courses. This course was specifically designed to open doors for those international professionals who don't have the time or resources to travel for an on-campus course."
Each participant who completes the course will receive one Continuing Education Unit (CEU) from Kansas State University.Course Dates:
Oct.31 - Dec. 9, 2011
