Grain School Online

Grain School is now moving into an online learning platform, with a first-time launch in February 2021. Due to the importance of grain in both people’s diets and sustainable agriculture, Grain School Online will be developed as foundational course that allows students to gain the necessary knowledge in grain from production to consumption. Topics include history and culture, biology, crop and cereal sciences, quality and safety standards, processing applications from grain to flour, cereals to breads, nixtamal to tortillas, malts to brews and grain to plates. The format for Grain School online will be hybrid, with online and in the “field/kitchen/bakery” experiences for on-campus students through the spring semester.

For non-UCCS students and community participants, grain school lectures, community discussion groups, and expert presentations will be taught using an online platform through University Outreach, with live sessions focused on special topics, conversations, collaborative writing, and more! Grain School online is organized in 3 separate courses and is self-paced with exception of live sessions held on Thursdays from 4.30-6pm.
