Sustainable Learning Networks: Lessons from the Military Families Learning Network

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) is an eXtension success story.  Initially funded as part of eXtension in 2010, the MFLN has grown to over 40 faculty and staff from 12 institutions working across nine content areas.  Our mission is to connect military family service providers (MFSPs) and Cooperative Extension educators to timely and cogent research and to each other. Through innovative professional development and programming and the human and experiential resources of CES, we create and support a rich and informed virtual network of professionals and resources in collective service to military families.

Participants will learn and discuss what a learning network is, how it’s different than a community of practice and lessons learned.  Participants will be able to implement some of the MFLN lessons in their own online programming as well as have some ideas on creating sustainable learning networks.
