Practical Application of Theory-Driven Intervention to Extension Programming
Bird, Carolyn; McClelland, Jacquelyn
Journal of Extension, v48 n6 Article 6FEA4 Dec 2010
For education to be effective, educators need to understand pertinent theories concerning behavior change and to apply them in programming. The study reported here sought to determine if the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) could be used to design, implement, and evaluate a brief educational session. Results show a significant increase in participants' intentions in six areas and should be encouraging to educators who need to show impact but do not always have the advantage of delivering and evaluating a series of programming. The study serves as a model for educators to show impact despite a low intervention dose. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
