Continuous Beta and a Healthy Dose of Paranoia
Because of technical difficulties during the Extension and Outreach Annual Conference, we were unable to hear from keynote speaker Anne Adrian during the live broadcast. However, Anne is presenting live, via Adobe Connect, on Tuesday, June 25, 3 p.m. Eastern Time, at https://connect.extension.iastate.edu/annualconference2013/ .
In her presentation, Anne discusses changes in our environment, some of which are shaped by technology and media advances. She also describes some skills and abilities needed for extension professionals and Extension and Outreach as an organization to have success in this ever-changing environment. She emphasizes the need to connect to diverse communities, develop higher-level sense-making skills, share openly, and become more agile in our work.
