A Conceptual Framework for Determining Training Needs of Extension Agents Applied to Dairy Science. The Findings from Extension Studies.
Verma, Satish
A summary of an Extension Education dissertation on a study to develop a framework of curriculum and learning theory features, to determine needs of Extension agents, and to show its application to dairy science is presented. Tyler's rationale for deriving educational objectives (curriculum theory) and Bloom's taxonomy of cognitive behavior (learning theory) were used in the study. Data were collected from 20 Extension agents engaged in dairy work in Louisiana, five state specialists in dairy and veterinary science and 86 dairymen over the state. Data was analyzed on agent cognitive ability and relative work value of dairy science concepts. Views of agents and specialists were compared to the extent of congruence. Conclusions and suggestions for further study were important. (NF)
