To support our members and interested extensionists, APEN hosted a series of interactive sessions via ExtensionChat- APEN Online in September 2020. Leading Australian and New Zealand extensionists created a dynamic online experience of learning, knowledge sharing and networking for extensionists with different skills and experiences within the sector.
“While COVID-19 has taken away our ability to meet in-person through the APEN Road Show this year, APEN is facilitating connectedness and support within our networks. In times of change and uncertainty, there is a need to keep our extension skills and knowledge updated”, said Graham Harris, APEN President. “As it is difficult to access the latest face-to-face training, APEN is delivering four interactive sessions over four weeks via Zoom video conferencing. We encourage APEN members and interested extensionists to take this opportunity to connect and network.”
Members and other extensionists were asked about their Professional Development needs and the topic areas being presented were drawn from their responses.
The interactive Zoom sessions were held, weekly from Tuesday September 1, 2020.
To learn the tools and techniques to empower the sharing of your expertise, APEN has engaged the services of four presenters who bring a wealth of skills, knowledge, innovative ideas and diverse experience over many years for the inaugural ExtensionChat program. Each brings different perspectives to the ExtensionChat program over the four weeks.
APEN’s ExtensionChat is a platform for professional development, networking and representation of members across Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia and the Pacific. The ExtensionChat program provides the opportunity to connect with like-minded extension professionals and influencers in the world of extension. Grow your extension network and broaden your skills and knowledge by sharing best practice amongst your peers.
