Cooperative Extension’s Role in Adult Learning and Development

This webinar conducted by the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) Cooperative Extension Special Interest Group (SIG) will highlight Extension’s role in adult learning and development and promote membership and participation in the association by Extension professionals who are not currently involved. Following an overview of Extension’s role in adult learning, SIG members will share practical examples of their work with adult audiences and the benefits of continually developing their skills as educators of adults. An overview of AAACE will follow with an explanation of how Extension professionals can benefit from participating and how they can in turn benefit the association. The work of the Cooperative Extension SIG will be highlighted. Extension professionals working in a variety of subject matter are invited and encouraged to attend.
