Strategies for Extension Specialists with Research or Classroom Instruction Assignments
Many Extension Specialists hold appointments including classroom teaching and research functions. The article discusses using the classroom to enhance Extension work, structuring a research program synergistic with Extension, and developing a focused program consistent with a smaller percentage time appointment in Extension. Integrating research and classroom teaching with a meaningful Extension appointment may seem daunting, but it can be done. The key to success is to creatively assess opportunities for blending the activities in a synergistic way instead of simply segmenting time across the three functions.
