Extension Skills 2022

This past year, the Impact Collaborative's Extension Skills series has provided Cooperative Extension professionals with the opportunity to build capacity with tools, processes, and tech skills training. Each second Thursday of the month, a workshop was led by an Extension expert to give professionals the opportunity to learn new skills and share best practices to help them be more effective and innovative in their work!

This year, the workshops focused on topics such as virtual engagement tips, using social media for media relations, podcasting, using issues forums, creating engaging social media, qualitative research data analysis in program evaluation, Customer Relationship Management, strategies for getting feedback and impact Data,  creating surveys, and elevating the impact of your outreach.

are thankful to all the Extension Professionals who joined us throughout the year to teach us important skills and introduce us to new tools that help us make an even greater impact. We look forward to continuing to build and learn in the upcoming year!
