Selecting Program Delivery Methods Effectively.
Richardson, John G.
Three groups were surveyed to determine the preferred modes of learning of persons directly associated with cooperative extension education in North Carolina. The modes of learning stated on the questionnaires were doing, touching/feeling, smelling, tasting, seeing, hearing, and discussing. Three groups completed the questionnaire: targeted clientele from 11 counties (n=77); new extension workers (n=31); and experienced extension agents enrolled in a graduate education class relating to educational program delivery (n=16). Results demonstrated that targeted extension audiences as well as agents themselves had distinct preferences for certain specific modes of learning. The studies showed very similar preferences by extension clientele as well as agents. The learning modes most strongly preferred as indicated in these studies were doing, seeing, and discussing.
