National eXtension Conference coming to Oklahoma City this fall
Extension professionals are invited to the National eXtension Conference, to be held Sept. 30-Oct. 5 in Oklahoma City. The conference's theme is "Spur on the Evolution of Extension," and it will include sessions on social media, evaluating reach, innovative education techniques, and more. Conference registration is $300 before Sept. 1 and $350 thereafter, and travel scholarships are available.
eXtension is an interactive online collaborative environment where Land Grant University content providers exchange objective, research-based knowledge in real time. Covering topics ranging from family caregiving to oil spills to pest management, information on eXtension's website is designed for the general public and to complement the community-based Cooperative Extension System.
