Biweekly Program Evaluation Drop-in for Agents: The virtual biweekly program evaluation drop-in is an opportunity for Extension Agents to ask questions about evaluation and impact reporting. Dr. Lola Adedokun, Director of Extension Evaluation, will be available to answer questions and provide feedback and technical guidance to strengthen programmatic evaluation designs, logic models, data collection instruments, data analysis strategies, impact reporting, and success stories. The drop-in sessions will hold from 12:00 – 1:00pm (EST) on Fridays (biweekly, beginning on March 11, 2022). Agents can join by Zoom any time, within the specified hour, and are free to leave the meeting after their questions have been answered. Agents who are interested in learning from others’ questions are welcome to stay throughout the session duration.

CORE TRAINING FOR NEW AGENTS

All new agents are required to complete at least 35 hours of core in-service trainings. Core in-services include topics pertinent to agent success at the county level. Core in-service trainings also count toward career ladder promotion. Agents can register for these trainings through the in-service catalog located in KERS. The majority of these trainings will be offered in clusters during the months of February, May and October of each year.

A list of core in-service trainings can be found below:
