EDUC 3510 - Engaged Learning through Extension, Outreach, and Instruction

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Co-meets with EDUC 5510 .

J. A. Perry.

Course is designed to explore strategies and instruction across three aspects of adult education: the Cooperative Extension Service as a structured delivery vehicle, outreach in more informal and non-traditional formats, and college instruction as a formal structure to deliver technical expertise. The intent is to develop a program to meet our target audience, then implement a plan that successfully meets the needs and expectations of instructor and participants alike.

Outcome 1: Students will become aware of differences and similarities across the audience profiles and develop targeted approaches to each.

Outcome 2: Students will gain understanding of the history and future development of extension programming and how it impacts instructional methods and opportunities.

Outcome 3: Students will develop a personal philosophy and vision for presenting technical information in a professional, yet approachable format that stimulates questions and further inquiry.

Outcome 4: Students will gain competency in selecting and integrating appropriate technological tools for instruction across a variety of audiences.

Outcome 5: Students will develop techniques to establish programming that differentiates presentations for a workshop, outreach program, and classroom presentation.

Outcome 6: Students will understand assessment strategies to verify learning objectives have been met and ascertain participant attitudes toward topics.
