Learning Opportunities in July and August

The next few months bring a variety of professional development for Extension and others. Everyone is welcome to participate in sessions of interest. A few highlights are included here. See the full listing of online events at Learn (learn.extension.org) and plan to attend. Sessions are added anytime, so check back for new ones.

Offering web-based learning? Click “Create a new event” to list it at Learn so others may share and participate.

Highlight: Is there an App for That?
Such a lot of talk about extension being easy for others to find and use on their mobile device! On June 25 Luke Wroblewski did an excellent session about Mobile First. See the recording at http://learn.extension.org/events/561. He will be returning on July 13 to talk about Organizing Mobile Experiences.
