Become an Innovation Facilitator
This training will provide individuals with a new way of looking at program and project development to help new and existing programs across your states and institutions identify gaps in their planning, ensure they are most ready for implementation, and have explored all considerations to maximize local impact.
Locally trained Innovation Facilitators can be an asset in helping teams develop their projects or programs more quickly, and connect those teams with resources available nationally. They can work locally with teams through our design-thinking process to bring fresh ideas aligned with institutional goals.
There are currently 107 Innovation Facilitators across Cooperative Extension working locally to catalyze innovation in their own states and institutions, and supporting Extension teams regionally and nationally.
Who Should Participate?
Our recommendations to Extension Directors and Administrators for selecting individuals to participate include:
- Individuals such as a program leaders
- Individuals that work closely with your leadership team
- Already possess strong confidence in facilitation skills
- Can be effective in working alongside leadership teams and other program leaders to catalyze innovation throughout the organization.
