Education - AB (Guusje) Bonnema

I am teaching the course Design of Plant Breeding Programs in which MSc students are challenged to design a plant breeding program for a crop and trait of their choice. In this course students need to apply knowledge of their MSc courses and combine this with practical aspects in order to develop a plant breeding strategy.  An important aspects of this education element is  to justify the choices and approaches made to reach the goal, being the new improved cultivar. 

Together with my colleagues I developed practical experiments and skill training activities for the Plant Breeding on line students that visit Wageningen University twice during their part-time MSc study.
