Series on Teaching and Learning for Extension Practitioners

Enhanced learning by any group is dependent upon effective teaching. Field extension agents are teachers, whether they personally meet with and present content or if they are purveyors of knowledge, using other resources and resource persons. Training modules being written as part of the MEAS project require that the front-line communicators (those who present the modules) are adept at teaching, whether they are field agents, district or federal administrators, or agency or ministry staff.

These nine technical papers are designed to provide the basic underpinnings of teaching and learning and provide specific teaching and learning strategies that can be used in delivering process and content modules.

The primary target group is the field agents – those who will train farmers and agribusiness workers. The secondary target group includes those who supervise or manage field agents, and those who make administrative decisions about conducting various extension programs, since they must support field agents in their work as educators and knowledge brokers.
