Extension Faculty Development through Graduate Level Education. Proceedings. North Central Regional Staff Development Workshop (St. Charles, Illinois, August 8-10, 1983).
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Cooperative Extension Service.
These proceedings begin with a history of the workshop series and a statement of the workshop's goals and purpose, specifically to examine issues related to graduate-level education as an extension staff development activity. A program overview and greetings precede the keynote address on the part graduate education can play in development of extension educators. The next presentation provides information on the state of the art in extension faculty development through graduate-level education in Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Presentations from five issue sessions address content for extension graduate education programs, working with departments and academic units offering graduate-level extension education (techniques for curriculum changes and modifications), extension schools and off-campus courses, incentives for graduate study, and alternatives to graduate-level learning. Extension and academic perspectives are then offered on graduate education policies and their influence on curriculum. A panel discussion follows on the role of counseling in decision making regarding career development. The final three presentations discuss the role of graduate-level education in extension. Plans of action for 14 states and a workshop evaluation are appended. (YLB)
