Benchmarking Professional Development Practices across Youth-Serving Organizations: Implications for Extension
Garst, Barry A.; Baughman, Sarah; Franz, Nancy
Journal of Extension, v52 n5 Article 5FEA2 Oct 2014
Examining traditional and contemporary professional development practices of youth-serving organizations can inform practices across Extension, particularly in light of the barriers that have been noted for effectively developing the professional competencies of Extension educators. With professional development systems changing quickly, particularly through online education and blended learning opportunities, benchmarks need to guide new research around best practices in professional development. Although many program providers have not established benchmarks for professional development, a few cases exist. This article examines the current state of professional development practices of youth-serving organizations and offers recommendations for improving Extension professional development practices.
