Professional Development Sessions
Extension Models of the USA in Changing Times Pete Vergot, District Extension Director, C106
University of Florida & John Vreyens, Director Global Initiatives, University of Minnesota
Many of the AIAEE members are from countries outside of the United States and have
limited knowledge of how Extension in the U.S. is administratively structured, who target
clientele are, and how Extension is funded. The Cooperative Extension System in the U.S.
being embedded in communities for the past 100 years has experienced changes in structure often driven by changes in funding. This session presents how two states have
adapted to the restrictions and changes from competitive funding while continuing to
provide effective Extension programs.
Expected Outcomes:
 Participants will gain knowledge and awareness of two types of administrative
Extension system structures, understand the broad program mandates beyond agriculture integral to the American extension system and gain knowledge of changing
funding sources for extension and the need for ongoing administrative restructuring
to fulfill the mission.
 Participants will learn through discussion how the adaptions may or may not apply to
the context of their respective national extension systems and by extension how to
think about adapting models to strengthen their local extension systems.
 Future leaders of extension systems will benefit from the analysis and collective
sharing of creating extension services and programs that remain relevant to the
context for members of the association.
 Administrators of extension systems or programs can learn how a national system of
extension evolves to maintain a common core of programs with a variation of administrative structures found geographically.
Managing Change to Build Community Capital through Adaption and Innovation
Curtis R. Friedel, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Virginia Tech; Matt Spindler, Ph.D., Assistant
Professor, Virginia Tech; Benjamin Ogwo, Ph.D., Assistant Professor and SUNY Oswego
When communities and agricultural training systems fail to enact and manage change, it
may be because they did not consider that people have an innate and preferred approach
to solving problems (Kirton, 2011). According to Adaption-Innovation (AI) theory, people
are either more adaptive or more innovative in how they solve problems. AI theory illustrates that individuals fall somewhere on a problem-solving style continuum ranging from
extremely adaptive to extremely innovative. AI theory is the only theory that connects
how one prefers to solve problems to preferences for managing change. Because complex problems require a diverse set of problem-solving styles working together as a team,
it is important for all members of a community (adaptive and innovative) to work together towards the common goal identified by the community leaders.
Expected Outcomes:
 Develop an awareness adaption-innovation theory as it relates to personal problemsolving style as it relates to agents of change and leading community members.
 Understand how AI theory applies to the building of community capital in forming a
guiding team, including aspects of social capital and political capital.
 Understand how to utilize individuals’ problem-solving styles to help prevent unintended consequences of solutions to community problems .
 Develop guidelines for growing a culture of problem-solving among community
2:30-4:00 pm
Professional Development Sessions continued
Towards Extension Professionalism from an Extension Perspective
Fanie Terblanche, University of Pretoria, South Africa; Tozamile Lukhalo, Department of
Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Republic of South Africa; Kristin Davis, Global Forum
for Rural Advisory Services, University of Pretoria and David Dolly, University of the West
Indies, Trinidad and Tobago
This session intends to reflect on the recent experiences of the South African Department
of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries with support of the South African Society of Agricultural Extension, who came together to establish legislation and a framework to recognize
agricultural extension as a scientific profession. These initiatives took place in the past
three years and now has generated much respect for the professionalism of agricultural
Expected Outcomes:
 Become energized and equipped to promote professionalism in agricultural
extension in your country/region.
 Understand the concept of professionalism in agricultural extension and extension as
a science.
 Have the necessary information to design a strategy to begin (or continue) the
process of professional recognition of extension and advisory services.
Team-Based Learning (TBL): Engaging Students in a “Flipped” Course Design to meet the C226
needs of 21st Century Learners
OP McCubbins, Dr. Thomas H. Paulsen and Dr. Ryan Anderson, Department of Agricultural
Education and Studies, Iowa State University
TBL makes small group work the primary focus of in class activities, and often requires the
course to be flipped. TBL transforms small groups into high performing, effective, selfmanaged learning teams. We will introduce the components of TBL and the anticipated
benefits of flipping a course into a more engaging, learner-centered classroom.
Expected Outcomes:
 Identify the components of team-based learning.
 Describe the Readiness Assurance Process and its components.
 Explain the 4 S’s of team-based learning: significant problem, same problem, specific
choice, simultaneous reporting.
 Summarize the benefits of “flipping” a course into team-based learning format.
 Model the process of “flipping” a course into team-based learning format.
Strategic Marketing Tools to Develop Educational and Extension Programs
Roger Hanagriff, Assistant Professor of Educational Outreach and Robert Strong, Associate Professor, Texas A&M University
The objectives of this session include a summary of strategic marketing principles and
tools that can be applied to extension and education programs, which relate to international development. Also, to provide conceptual frameworks that can be utilized in developing programmatic solutions for entrepreneurship, extension and educational
Expected Outcomes:
 Gain knowledge and awareness of marketing models used in business development
and how these have application in an extension and educational setting.
 Be able to use worksheets and other resources to use in your own projects and research proposals.
 Develop logic models using marketing concepts.
