Connect Extension Podcast Now Available


The eXtension Foundation is pleased to announce that our Connect Extension Podcast is now available! Each month in Connect Extension, eXtension hosts a virtual chat on a different topic area to highlight best practices and innovations throughout Cooperative Extension. In June 2020, we hosted a virtual chat on virtual field days, led by @Victor Villegas, Oregon State University Extension Service, and @Rose Hayden-Smith, eXtension Technology in Extension Education Fellow

Following each virtual chat, eXtension selects a few participants to join us for a podcast episode on the topic area. 

For the first four episodes, we had a chance to talk with five Extension professionals about their experience in moving their field days to a virtual format. This includes:

The podcast is available right here in Connect Extension on the main page. There is a podcast player located in the widget area on the right side of the screen. A direct link to the playlist is available here
