Happy New Year: Moving Forward In 2013!

In 2013, we have important work adding value to eXtension, Cooperative Extension’s national online collaborative network. We will do this by engaging and reaching key audiences, optimizing Communities of Practice, helping develop an effective 21st Century workforce, and developing and introducing new and innovative technologies for delivering Extension programs. Throughout the year you will hear much more about the following:

• the redesign of eXtension.org
• eXtension evaluation
• how eXtension enhances the Cooperative Extension brand
• virtual worlds and mobile applications
• learning networks
• new educational models and delivery systems
• state and local value enhancement
• partnerships and funding
• accountability and transparency
• military families programming
• professional development programs
• adoption and use of new and innovative technologies

It will be a very busy year, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. As the world continually changes, so does eXtension. Grab a computer and join in the transformation that is eXtension.

Happy New Year
