Extension Professional Development

This 36-page guidebook includes an overview of situational analysis/needs assessment including exploration, data gathering, and utilization. Numerous examples include interview protocols, letters to invite participation in surveys, and strategies for working with advisory groups.
A process evaluation of the 4-H Science: Building a 4-H STEM Career Pathway Initiative was conducted, and this publication describes the initiative’s goals,  implementation, key findings, and recommendations. A major recommendation was to expand 4-H Science programming using community and corporate volunteers.
This publication provides definitions of two models for contemporary Extension work: (a) the Program Planning and Evaluation Model and (b) the Reactive Programming Model. The models provide guideposts and a common language for Extension education. These models foster an understanding of the very complex nature of extending university knowledge and resources to North Carolina residents.
This publication provides graphics and brief descriptions of the Program Planning and Evaluation Model and Reactive Programming Model. This publication is suitable to print on cardstock for sharing with county advisory councils, county commissioners, and other stakeholders to explain Extension programming.
Career Exploration
To connect potential community college transfer students to agriculture, agriculture academic programs, and careers, we launched an online career matrix. The matrix aligns three primary sources of online information: (a) Holland’s six occupational themes (Realistic, Investigating, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional); (b) O*NET occupations specific to food and agricultural sciences; and (c) academic programs at NC State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
