Conference Name It´s teaching...On Campus and Off

Steve Isaacs


Extension farm management professionals often find themselves teaching in both public and classroom settings. While many complementarities exist for these two settings, there are also differences and conflicts between the approaches to the two audiences. This presentation will address these complementarities and conflicts from the perspective of an Extension farm management specialist who has also had a formal classroom teaching assignment. Topics to be addressed include differences and similarities in teaching and learning styles, the crossover of theory and real-life situations, and the diversity of audiences. The presentation will also discuss the needs and techniques to develop critical thinking and decision-making skills for both groups
