Learner Engagement

Our cornerstone is creating learning experiences that impact learners; do they change behavior or practice, in ways that benefit them, their families, their businesses or their communities? As Extension moves into its second century, we must be committed to the following:

  1. Learner-centered education - meeting learners where they are at and in ways that benefit them.
  2. Being innovative in creating educational experiences that deepen learner engagement.
  3. Demonstrating our ability to evolve as individuals and as an organization to more effectively engage learners.
  4. Making a difference for Nebraska and Nebraskans, in ways they value.

This document outlines our evolving learner engagement concept and the steps we intend to take to strengthen our ability to engage learners in high value learning experiences.
