Qualitative Research and Data Analysis in Program Evaluation (Extension Skills - Connect Extension)
Aug. 11, 2022
2– 3 p.m.

Click here to read more and register.
Qualitative research methods can be powerful tools for conducting program evaluations. Yet, most program evaluations rely heavily on quantitative methods and designs, possibly due to common misconceptions that qualitative research is less rigorous and credible than quantitative research. Both methodological approaches have strengths and weaknesses that complement each other, making it possible for the weaknesses of one method to be offset by the strengths of the other.

In contrast to quantitative methods, which ask variations of "how much/many" questions, qualitative methods focus more on "how" and "why" types of questions. As such, qualitative inquiry prioritizes people's lived experiences and the meanings they ascribe to their experiences. This webinar aims to introduce participants to the characteristics of qualitative research, focusing on the role of qualitative methods in program evaluation. We will discuss common qualitative techniques used for program evaluation and present an introduction to qualitative data analysis.

Moving on From Traditions - Dynamic Discussions (Connect Extension)
July 28, 2022
11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Click here to read more and register.
Extension's storied past and sacred traditions served us well for more than a century. But today's world and issues are unlike history, demanding fresh thinking about the best ways to accomplish our mission of empowering communities of all sizes to meet the challenges they face, adapt to changing technology, improve nutrition and food safety, prepare for and respond to emergencies, and protect our environment.

Three recently retired (but not tired) directors of state Extension Services share their perspectives about meaningful (and frequently ongoing) improvements in the way we plan, design and implement our work. By participating, we hope you will react to their admonitions about the 1) strategic value of calling upon the entire university for Extension and engagement, 2) short-sighted programming by single disciplines and 3) failures in strategic planning. Hosted by Extension Directors Rick Klemme and Scott Reed.

Costs for High-Speed Internet Reduced for Millions of Americans (Connect Extension– article)
By Marie Ruemenapp


High-speed internet service is no longer a luxury — it's a necessity. But too many families go without high-speed internet because of the cost or have to cut back on other essentials to make their monthly internet service payments. Lowering prices — including the cost of high-speed internet service — is President Biden's top priority. In May 2021, President Biden and Vice President Harris announced that they secured private sector commitments that will lower high-speed internet costs for millions of American families.

Getting to Diverse Representation of ANR Volunteers
by Pam Kan Rice

We know we need to attract more diverse representation for ANR volunteers. An article from North Carolina State University confirms it's not just ANR. 

The authors wrote, "Overall, 95% of respondents identified as white. The lack of racial diversity was striking for each sample, with 96% of participants in both the Christmas Bird count and Candid Critters identifying as white and 88% of respondents from SciStarter saying the same. While only 14% of the U.S. population has a graduate or professional degree, about half of our survey respondents held these degrees. Additionally, while only 6% of the U.S. population has careers in science, technology, engineering or math, almost half of our survey respondents from all three data sources worked in STEM fields.

"Participating in citizen science is linked to personal benefits like learning new skills and building community. If citizen science is only reaching educated white science professionals, then it's concentrating the benefits of participation among this group.

"Additionally, if one of the goals of citizen science is to boost science literacy and trust in science, it can't achieve that goal if it's preaching to the choir by only reaching people who already work in science." https://theconversation.com/citizen-science-volunteers-are-almost-entirely-white-184997
