The Impact of Tour-Based Diversity Programming on County Extension Personnel and Programs
Shaklee, Harriet; Luckey, Brian; Tifft, Kathee
Journal of Extension, v52 n5 Article 5IAW3 Oct 2014
This article explores the effect that planning and conducting an intensive multi-day, tour-based diversity workshop can have on the professional development and Extension work of the county Extension educators involved. Survey data was collected from the county Extension educators who planned workshops throughout Idaho. Educators reported that the process of hosting the workshop led to significant advances in their professional development, strengthened relationships with underserved groups, and facilitated greater inclusiveness in Extension programming. Planning and conducting intense training programs can be an effective way to promote more tailored and appropriate Extension responses to a community's distinct issues.
