The New Extensionist Learning Kit

The Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services has developed The New Extensionist: a global view of extension and advisory services (EAS) that reinvents and clearly articulates the role of EAS in the rapidly-changing rural context. It argues for an expanded role for EAS within agricultural innovation systems (AIS) and development of new capacities at different levels to play this role. The Learning Kit contains 13 modules designed for self-directed, face-to-face, or blended learning and can be a useful tool for individual extension field staff, managers, lecturers, non-governmental organizations, and other training institutions.
