OSU Open Campus and NEDA Innovative Showcase
OSU Open Campus was selected to be part of an Innovation Showcase at the National Extension Directors and Administrators (NEDA) Meeting at the Embassy Suites-Downtown in St. Louis on October 13. The nine innovative ideas to be showcased were selected from a field of 151 entries and is an ECOP project to develop a Cooperative Extension Innovation Inventory. That inventory is the basis for the 2015 NEDA meeting and is designed to show how Cooperative Extension is positioned for excellence in its second 100 years. Jeff Sherman will be presenting at the NEDA meeting.
OSU Extension in the Spotlight at ESP National Conference
OSU Extension faculty members had a major educational role in last week’s ESP National Conference, “Unlocking the Treasures of Your Future” in Coeur d’Alene, ID. Twenty posters presentations were selected through a blind review process and OSU earned four of those slots. In addition, all four of OSU’s posters were selected for the Top Ten Posters Award, with each faculty member receiving a $100 stipend toward their conference expenses. Congratulations to Susan Busler (Creating Extension Tax Districts – A New Era for Extension), Glenda Hyde (High Speed Hand Washing Helps Build Healthy Habits), Judi Peters (Get Them Doing Science!), and Joy Jones (Garden to Grub – 4-H Embraces the Local Food Movement).
OSU Extension faculty also were selected through a blind review selection process for one of the conference’s 24 seminar presentations. Congratulations to Shana Withee and Susan Busler (The 100 Best Travel Tips), Mike Knutz and Barbara Brody (Improving Your Team Performance with Emotional Intelligence), and Patricia Dawson (Attitudes for Success – Hispanic Outreach Program).
OSU also provided two of the conference’s featured speakers, including Dr. Kay Sagmiller, Director, Center for Teaching and Learning (Being the Best Educator Possible) and Dr. Larry Roper, Professor, School of Language, Culture and Society (Leadership and You . . . A Priceless Combination).
It was good to be a Beaver in Coeur d’Alene!!

PACE Accepting Enrollment Forms for online enrollment system
A reminder to all County Extension Offices that we are currently accepting your Enrollment Form for your workshops or events that you would like to test through OSU Professional and Continuing Education’s (PACE) online enrollment system. Each county can submit one event or workshop for this first testing period.
Please note: This new resource will not immediately replace all existing enrollment or event registration processes. Instead, we will work with each county to pilot online registration services for one event or conference taking place January 1 – June 30, 2016. Also note that the RA must approve this event or conference prior to submission, and you will simply note that with a “Yes” on that line on the Enrollment form.
The deadline for submitting the enrollment form to PACE is October 31. This will ensure we have enough time to get your event set up in plenty of time for your community members to register.
This new option for Extension is designed to make registration increasingly accessible for participants, as well as simpler to manage for you and your colleagues across the state. By working with each county on one event during the pilot period, we will help ensure online event registration works well for your office and your participants. Our team looks forward to supporting you every step of the way. We also look forward to working to provide this service to Extension counties more frequently once we complete the pilot process in mid-2016.
Please note that the online registration system is an additional option for you to provide your community members and is not required for you to pursue for your workshops and or conferences.
If your event requires payment from attendees… Please include the OSU account detail code on our setup request form. Detail codes are designed to ensure revenue is accounted for correctly. If new detail codes may be needed or if you are uncertain about which code to use, please contact Tiffany Gillis of the University Administrative Business Center (UABC) at Tiffany.Gillis@oregonstate.edu.
Please click the following link https://pace.oregonstate.edu/extension-enrollment-form for the Enrollment form.
We will then follow up with you within five to seven business days to confirm the information with you and start working on it. If you have any questions, please contact Susan Dredge at PACE: firstname.lastname@example.org 541-737-4197.
