Ohio State ATI professor named National Educator of the Year

Laura Deeter

Laura Deeter, professor of horticulture technologies at Ohio State ATI in Wooster, was one of three university educators named a 2019 Educator of the Year in a national program sponsored by the software company Instructure. Deeter turned her plant identification course into a game about plants and zombies and gave students a unique and exciting learning experience. She likes to test out new ways of teaching and incorporates nontraditional classroom activities, such as gamification, that will help her students in their future careers. By gamifying her course, student engagement with the course skyrocketed. Ohio State ATI is the two-year degree-granting unit of The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES).
