Mian, Hidayat Ullah
Focusing on basic instruction, inservice training, research, and coordination of functions and personnel, this study used a theoretical model approach to develop guidelines for more effective extension educational operation and leadership by West Pakistan Agricultural University. A brief analysis of the cultural and socioeconomic situation in West Pakistan served as a basis for the model. Recommendations included a combined, interdisciplinary approach to formal training in extension education; competency needs as the chief criterion in curriculum planning; an appropriate combination of agricultural technology and extension methodology; specialization in technical fields with courses in extension education and supporting subjects; initiative by the University to coordinate activities and organize inservice training for extension personnel; and interdisciplinary research that adequately supports field extension and other extension activities.
