New Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Professionals


Published on

Slides from today's eXtension Webinar: Over the past 16 months, the eXtension Foundation has undergone a series of changes as it evolves from primarily an online learning platform for Extension professionals to a more blended model of engagement with the introduction of the i-Three Issue Corps. And there is more change to come as emphasis grows on connecting groups with intersecting interests to expand the leveraging of knowledge and relationships to achieve greatest impact.

Please join us on this webinar moderated by eXtension Foundation CEO Christine Geith. Panelists will include eXtension leaders Jerry Thomas, Anne Adrian, Ashley Griffin, Terry Meisenbach, Larry Lippke, Beth Raney and Mark Locklear who will review recent changes in their areas of responsibility that create new professional growth opportunities for Extension professionals at eXtension Foundation member institutions. All will be prepared to answer questions and provide examples of new tools, services and initiatives that have been developed or are in development for future use by Cooperative Extension Service teams and professionals.
