An important article came out in the June 2017 edition of the Journal of Extension.
"Redefining the Concept of Learning in Cooperative Extension" is a thoughtful, challenging conversation starter. I recently discussed it with the NDSU Extension Innovation team, and it sparked several questions from the practical to the existential.
After that conversation, I could hardly wait to talk with the authors, and they were kind enough to oblige. Here's my conversation with Steven Worker, 4-H Youth Development Advisor, University of California, Agriculture and Natural Resources; Kristy Ouellette, Associate Extension Professor, 4-H Youth Development, University of Maine, Cooperative Extension; and Alexa Maille, 4-H STEM Specialist, Cornell University, Cornell Cooperative Extension. I hope it gets you thinking.
