Dr.C.Bhaskaran, did you notice any remarkable changes in the way extension research is conducted (Methodology, statistical analysis) in poster presentation, compared to Indian extension researches?
It is good to see the meeting notes of Dr.Bhaskaran who took part in the Annual Conference of AIAEE. What is more interesting is the theme of the next conference - Competence and excellence in extension and education scheduled to be organised in Wageningen , next year. Thanks to Dr.Bhaskaran for bringing out excerpts of such an important meeting.
Read with interest, the paper presented by Dr C Bhaskaran, Transformational Model of Extension Education being followed in the ATMA PLUS program in Kerala could be of tremendous interest to extension professionals in India since it is an important need based institutional innovation within ATMA opening scope for making need based changes in the original structure & functions of ATMA.. ATMA plus certainly is a new new concept for many of us. May be he can share his ideas here in this forum too some idea we can get from this link about ATMA PLUS.http://www.keralaagriculture.gov.in/pdf/wi_27.07.2013.pdf
