Popcorn and a Movie--Opening Diversity Conversations across the State
Ingram, Patreese D.
Journal of Extension, v51 n3 Article 3IAW1 Jun 2013
Building the cultural competencies of Extension educators to work effectively with increasingly diverse audiences has become an important goal and a timely focus for professional development. Yet reduced budgets and reductions in staff are challenging the ability to provide professional development in the traditional face-to-face delivery method. This article describes the use of diversity-focused video documentaries followed by open discussions conducted over videoconferencing to multiple county sites. The majority of participants rated this format as a good strategy for diversity education.
