Title: Extension Program Development


1
Extension Program Development
  • September 2003

2
Situation
  • Currently in final year of 4-year POW
  • Many changes in four years
  • Need information to guide county, multi-county,
    regional, and state programming
  • Federal requirements for stakeholder input
  • Commitment to strengthen County Extension
    Councils
  • Must set program priorities, cant do it all

3
Program development is a deliberate process
through which Extension engages representatives
of the public in designing, implementing and
evaluating plans of action for addressing needs
and issues they have helped to identify.
4
Implications
  • Citizens must be involved throughout the entire
    process
  • It is about people not paperwork
  • Writing a plan of work is only a small piece
  • The POW simply summarizes our intentions
  • MS calls the POW a program delivery agreement

5
Expectations and Timeline
  • County Extension agents facilitate the process
  • Provide overview to Executive Committee
  • At least two CEC meetings this fall
  • New C-MAPs identified by end of the year
  • Plans written in spring, reviewed by CEC
  • Implement new plans July 1, 2004
  • Citizens involved in all phases

6
The program development process is made up of six
distinct but interrelated phases linked together
in a circular pattern.

Situation Analysis

  • Purpose is to identify issues, problems, needs,
    and opportunities which might be addressed by
    Extension programs

  • CEC must be involved in data collection
  • Three main sources of information

12
Three Sources of Information for Situation
Analysis

  • Resident Perspectives
  • Current Research and Knowledge

13
Existing Data

Gathering Resident Perspectives
  • Community Forums

  • Surveys

15
Current Research and Knowledge
  • Research, legislation, policies which have
    implications for programming
  • Role of specialists to provide
  • Knowledge transfer also a role for Extension
  • Compliments grass-roots programming

Role of the CECin Situation Analysis

    one method for gathering resident perspectives,
    and current research and knowledge)
  • Assist with data collection
  • Ensure program council involvement
  • Meet again in late fall or early winter to
    interpret data, identify programming
    opportunities, set priorities

    C-MAPs
