image010The New Extensionist is a global view of extension and advisory services (EAS) that reinvents and clearly articulates the role of EAS in the rapidly-changing rural context. It argues for an expanded role for EAS within agricultural innovation systems (AIS) and development of new capacities at different levels for EAS to play this role.

GFRAS has developed a learning kit for the New Extensionist. It contains 13 modules designed for self-directed, face-to-face or blended learning and can be a useful tool for everyone directly or indirectly involved with EAS, including individual extension field staff, managers, lecturers, non-governmental organisations, private sector RAS providers and education and training 

Six Modules are published for the remaining seven we are seeking interested people or institutions that would test the elaborated training material. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. until 25 March for more details.
