Webinar Topic 1: Current and past good practice models – July 24, 2013

The agricultural extension service has a long history of supporting farmers, agribusiness and agricultural development. We’ll talk about the four paradigms of agricultural extension services and brainstorm how those might translate to knowledge sciences. What can we learn from agricultural extension centers and their contributions to the robust agricultural economy? Can we build centers and a network around this model? What can we learn from other efforts that didn’t work? What kinds of challenges and opportunities would stakeholders bring to the Center? Who do we envision the Center’s stakeholders to be?
