Check out training offered through eXtension
Good morning all:
I'm wondering how familiar anyone in our group is with eXtension. I have been watching its development but not really involved. This afternoon I plan to join their 30-minute webinar on Moodle Courses. Another webinar that may be relevant to our work is Using Ning Groups to Improve Learning in Extension Programs, scheduled for 7/29. I'm thinking that there may be several possibilities for linkages and leverage:
* The brief webinars may provide a model that would be useful to us for the curriculum that Ross is leading us to develop. (Or they may provide an example of what we absolutely do not want to do -- it remains to be seen.)
* There may be opportunities to develop a new Community of Interest through our project and/or to link in some way with existing Communities of Interest.
* I'm finding that I need to push myself to become involved in the new technologies pretty much across the board. I'm realizing how much I've become stuck in old habits.
I'll let you know how I find today's webinar, but I encourage you to check for yourself. Also, we got our three MSU summer apprentices registered at LFS on Monday. Two of them were with me yesterday, participating in a Rapid (Farmers) Market Assessment workshop. I've asked them to write about that and to post it.
