2010 eXtension CoP Workshop ‘A Success’

“We are very excited to report that the 2010 National eXtension CoP Workshop was a great success,” said Craig Wood, eXtension associate director. “We had Communities of Practice represented from all stages of development: launched (many pioneer CoPs), to newly launched, to those developing content, to those most recently named. More seasoned CoP members were mentoring newer members; eXtension staff were training and advising; and all were engaged in an outstanding learning process.”

More than 180 Extension professionals participated in the 2010 National eXtension CoP Workshop held June 6-8, 2010 in Austin, Texas. Participants attended 55 concurrent sessions on topics like Moodle, Google Wave, Using the Wiki, Google Knol, Facebook & Twitter, marketing, evaluation, social media strategies, development, collaboration and more. Two outstanding keynote speakers, David Warlick of the Landmark Project and Melissa Rach of Brain Traffic were featured. The group was welcomed to Texas by Texas Agrilife Extension Director Ed Smith.

More than 23 concurrent sessions as well as both keynote addresses were recorded and web cast during the meeting. The recording URLs for these sessions will be posted to the conference web site: https://www.extension.org/the-2010national-cop-workshop/ as soon as they are available.
