GFRAS graphic II

The New Extensionist Learning Kit is a learning resource for individual extension field staff, managers, and lecturers. It is based on the The 'New Extensionist' - Roles, Strategies, and Capacities to Strengthen Extension and Advisory Services, a GFRAS position paper that discusses new capacities for rural advisory services and extension to address the current challenges in agriculture and to contribute better to agricultural innovation. The kit focuses on functional skills and is available for self-directed, face-to-face, or blended learning.

The New Extensionist Learning Kit (NELK) contains 13 modules designed for self-directed, face-to-face, or blended learning and can be a useful tool for (not exclusively) individual extension field staff, managers, lecturers and non-governmental organisations, and other training institutions.

Hello, GFRAS Team. I am glad to inform you that I encouraged my students in extension to enroll in module 3. However, I found out that the checking of essay exams are not very accurate. Some students just typed "I don't know" but your system accepted their answers and gave them points for it. I hope you can improve your system on how essay exams are checked and scored. Thanks.

Dear Lorenz, dear GFRAS Team
I was in to explore your wonderful work. Unfortunately I got stuck at the first quiz of unit 2. There is no way to answer the 1st question, thus impossible to go further. Hope it wont be to much trouble to fix this. I'm looking forward to go on discovering more of the proposed contents.
Kind Regards Niels ( From Agridea)
