The University of Tennessee, Tennessee State University, eXtension.org and USDA-Rural Development developed training curriculum on biomass energy for Extension agents and local officials so that they may deliver this information to their stakeholders. While it is written as a training guide for TN, much of the information is applicable throughout the Southeastern US region.
The Biomass Energy Training Curriculum for each topic area includes:
- Lesson Guide with Learning Objectives and information notes for each presentation slide.
- Slide presentation
- Factsheet and other educational materials
- Questions which can be used to test participants’ knowledge at the end of the presentation. This can be combined with clickers to improve audience engagement and create discussion
- Evaluation of the presentation.
Curriculum sections include: introduction to biomass energy, on-farm biodiesel production, native warm-season grasses for bioenergy and forage production, and soil health.
