How adoption pathway analysis can help us

4/11/2022
As enablers of change it is important that we keep up-to-date with the latest extension research. But sometimes it can be hard to get the journal article, let alone make the time to read and digest it! However, we thought we could help with this. In this episode we’re exploring adoption pathway analysis, thanks to a colleague of Denise’s… Oscar Montes. See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Using VR and AR in extension to add an extra dimension

3/14/2022
Have you heard the acronyms VR and AR before? If you’re like us, you might be saying yes, but I’m not really sure what each of those really means—is there even a difference? And then, like us, you might also be wondering whether they have a place in the toolkit for enablers of change. So today we thought we would explore VR and AR in extension!

Boosting survey responses

2/28/2022
In a recent episode we talked through designing a decent survey, but of course that is only one part of the bigger picture. To boost the number of responses to our surveys, should we offer an incentive to our potential survey respondents? If we were to offer an incentive, what should it be? In this episode we’ll explore what the research says about this! See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Designing a decent survey

2/14/2022
Surveys seem to be a constant in life at the moment! Like the old quote about the only certainties being death and taxes—it seems that everyone (and their dog) would like you to just fill in this quick survey or answer a short series of questions! As enablers of change, surveys are an important part of our toolkit. So just what do we need to know when designing a survey? How can we be sure we will collect the data we need? In this episode we’ll explore how to design a decent survey. See the...

Make a real difference this year!

1/31/2022
Are you wondering how best to start the year and make a real difference? We’re not big fans of New Year’s resolutions, but we do like to pause and think about what we’re going to do differently. It’s easy to just keep doing what we did last year, but we find that this is often a good time to try something different. See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Thanks and wishing you a merry Christmas!

12/6/2021

What is a Theory of change?

10/25/2021
In one of our recent episodes we covered designing an extension program. While putting that together, we realised that there were other important aspects to cover that complement the design of an extension program. One of these is developing a Theory of change. But that brings us to the questions—what is a Theory of change and how would we use one? See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Let‘s do more experiments!

10/11/2021
We think it is easy for us to keep the status quo, and keep doing the same things day in, and day out. It’s comfortable, it’s easy to plan, and we know what to expect. But what might happen if we were to change something? In this episode we are going to explore the scientific method and see how we can achieve greater results through greater experimentation. See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Using adult learning principles in webinars

9/27/2021
Do you think, like some others, that adult learning principles sound like an old, outdated approach - something that was dreamed up in the 1970s and 80s, and surely cannot still be relevant? In this episode we will explore how we can apply adult learning principles to super-charge our webinars. See the show notes and contribute to the discussion over at our blog.

Are you thinking of running a hybrid event where you have attendees both online and physically present in one or more venues?
