Developing the Extension Professional

Improving the performance of Extension professionals was identified by Extension Directors as a major mission of the NEW eXtension. Measurement of professional performance has traditionally focused on one's knowledge of a set of core competencies identified by different groups within Extension.  A current inventory of these competencies finds both inconsistency based on which group of Extension professionals created the list and possible obsolescence (e.g., https://goo.gl/EwYcqt; https://learn.extension.org/events/1073). This session will provide an overview of the competency models currently used in Extension along with a brief exposure to alternative education industry competencies (e.g., http://www.iftf.org/futureworkskills/), and then will turn to gaining input from participants on competencies relevant to the work of issues, innovation, and impact. An online system will be available during the Knowledge Cafe through which participants' can express their suggestions or concerns.
