|The Logic Model for Extension|
Developing and conducting research-based educational programs that result in a demonstrated impact on clients is the premise of extension work.
Planning extension programs offer an opportunity to learn more about our communities and set our work's direction. Planning programs is about understanding our community situation. This involves identifying community needs and assets, and identifying priorities.
The program design includes planning the learning environment and experience through conceptualizing change and selecting program activities to achieve desired results.
