Basic Hydroponics Course for Urban Farming (29 Jun 2019)

The slides can use some update with latest pic of problems, defects and successful examples. Links can also be provided to useful information where we can obtain more details.

if future lesson can tour a actual hydroponic setup is much better. I rather trade the 1st hour on history lesson vs looking at a real setup. (Posted on 11/4/2017)

Recommend a simple survey to find out the detailed needs of the participants either before the date of the course through email or on the same day before the commencement of the course. A simple question e.g.: Why do you want to attend this course? Answers will be very varied, such as for a hobby, for my construction company's requirement, to find out local situations with successful implementations.... Lecturer can zero in and on the participants' needs. (Posted on 8/8/2017)

To have higher level courses like intermediate or advance course

The classroom layout can improve. 1) Aircon blowing directly at students (not recommended). 2) There is a pillar at the middle of the classroom thus block students view (for those sitting directly behind). (Posted on 6/25/2017)
