The Administrator Series brings community and technical college leaders together to explore the issues, innovation, and insights of today as they deliberate about what’s needed to drive change for tomorrow. Participants can expect to be engaged in interactive learning designed to help them build...
Whether you are camping IRL (in real life) or through URLs (with online nature resources), good campfire cuisine is an important part of the experience. Launched in 2015 by Megan McDuffie and Michael van Vliet, Fresh Off the Grid is a blog created by and for outdoor enthusiasts, with an emphasis on food and recipes. The Recipes page, which houses more than 100 different options, can be sorted by meal type (e.g. dinner), diet (e.g. gluten free), and cooking method (e.g. one pot or pan). In addition to ingredient lists and instructions, recipes include a brief narrative and a few pictures. Those new to cooking and camping (or both) may want to check out "27 Easy Camping Meals to Make Camp Cooking a Breeze," (published on March 17, 2020), which highlights some of the simplest recipes on the blog. Most recipes require few ingredients, but some do involve culinary gadgets tailored to outdoor cooking (such as pie irons and dehydrators). Some of these items are linked with options to purchase, and readers should note that the blog authors do receive a commission for items purchased via these links.

These interactive learning objects focus on concepts that cover a broad-based electromechanical program. The majority of these objects have been created for electronics, but during the next three years (until 2008), at least 300 more objects will be built that will focus on other topic areas such as hydraulics, pneumatics, mechanical design, and process control (see complete list on the left side of this page). Instructors from Fox Valley Technical College and other colleges in the Wisconsin Technical College System are creating these objects. FVTC has partnered with four other colleges throughout the United States that will be contributing to this repository. The effectiveness of learning objects was demonstrated in an evaluation conducted at FVTC during the 2004-2005 academic year. A brief summary of the evaluation can be read by clicking on the Assessment button on this Home Page. These objects can also be found on the Wisc-Online digital library at www.wisconline.org. Learning objects are available to be used at no cost by teachers and students worldwide via the Internet.
