A couple of weeks ago, we announced that registration had opened for our virtual Impact Collaborative Summit. Our Virtual Impact Collaborative Summit will continue as scheduled for eXtension members, but we have shifted the focus of the event to helping our members co-create solutions to deliver Extension programs virtually. This opportunity will also help increase participants’ confidence in creative delivery of programs.
As you all know, COVID-19 has created challenges across Cooperative Extension and across the nation. As a result of a survey conducted across the system last week, eXtension is currently focused on serving Cooperative Extension in two primary areas in response to COVID-19:
1. Providing resources, professional development, and learning opportunities around working virtually.
Using our technology platforms and tools, we’ve launched a resource site at virtual.eXtension.org available to the entire Land-Grant University system with new content being added everyday from all across Cooperative Extension. Additionally, we have launched a new platform, Connect Extension, available to the entire system. Within the platform, eXtension members have exclusive access to professional development, learning opportunities, and opportunities for collaboration.
2. Co-creating solutions for delivering Extension programs virtually
Our network of Key Informants from in and out of Cooperative Extension will be ready to help accelerate finding solutions to the challenges of delivering Extension programs virtually. For this Summit, there is no requirement to participate as part of a team and we have streamlined our registration process. We invite individuals from our member institutions to be part of this event.
