Welcome to San Antonio for the 2016 National eXtension Conference.
We’re happy to have both... participants in the Professional Development track and participants in the i-Three Issue Corps track!

Sessions that were full during registrations will have limited availability for additional attendees. 

Here is a floorplan of the conference rooms to assist in finding your activities.

Needs Assessments: Where do you look for emerging issues?

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

The top 10 web searches for Google in 2015 were about music, movies, and terroristic acts (interesting but not helpful).  Where can we find emerging issues that Extension can address? We will explore data from google analytics, Google Trends, Google News Alerts, University News Services, Facebook Trends, Twitter Moments, BuzzFeed, and the 2016 Horizon Report.  Where can we find the pulse on hot topics?  Where have you looked?  We will also breifly discuss Makerspaces, Working out Loud, and the Internet of Things to try to understand better where these ideas are going.  Lastly, we will use the TCFF model from Texas to examine how to look for areas of overlap and create an action plan.
