Abstract

In an environment of widespread budget decreases for Extension, we examine how interested and capable Extension educators are for on-line professional development. We also explore which factors are most important when deciding to participate in a professional development opportunity and what content areas are of most interest. Results indicate that nearly all of the participants surveyed are interested in on-line professional development and find content to be the most important factor. They are most interested in topics like youth development and risk-behaviors. We discuss the findings and outline recommendations for offering an effective on-line course.
