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. 
Zoom Link: For security reasons, this Zoom link requires authentication to join—this means that agents must be logged onto their account to join a session. Please note that this is not an in-service training and credits will not be offered for participation.

The County Extension Agent Development System is divided into three major phases: orientation, core training and professional development. The nature of the learning experiences associated with these changes in accordance with the tenure of the agents for which the experiences are planned.

During orientation and core training phases, all agents participate in the same standard curriculum. The purpose of this training is to help you acquire the base level knowledge and skills needed on the job. As your tenure with the organization increases, learning will become more self-directed. You select the learning experiences that help you remain current in subject matter, the profession, meet long-term career goals, or respond to emerging local programming needs.
