A Note about a Few, Upcoming 4-H Agent In-Services

Jul 20, 2020


Lori Gallimore, Extension Specialist

Several of you are registered for a couple of in-services scheduled for August and September in which I am coordinating/co-coordinating. I wanted to give you an update so that you can make appropriate changes to your calendars:

In-Service:

“Developing Quality Section A, Section B and Section C Portfolio Forms” Currently Scheduled for:

  • Eastern Region – August 4, 2020
  • Central Region – August 10, 2020
  • Western Region – September 29, 2020

New Plan:

This training will NOT be held in a face-to-face format. Instead, I will be scheduling a time to meet with each person registered for this training one-on-one via Zoom. I have some “best practices” information to share with you to help you improve the quality of your e-portfolios. This time will also be used for the two of us to look at your e-portfolios together and discuss ways that they can be improved. These will be conducted in 45-minute sessions.

As soon as the calendar is ready, I will send it out, along with further instructions, so that you can go in and sign up for a time that works best for both of us.

In-Service

“All Together Now!: Sensory and SEL Tools for Youth with Disabilities” Currently Scheduled for:

  • Western Region – August 31, 2020
  • Central Region – September 1, 2020
  • Eastern Region – September 2, 2020

New Plan:

This training will NOT be held in a face-to-face format, but virtual instead. This in-service is a joint effort between 4-H and FCS. The FCS Human Development Leadership Team is working now to organize these resources into a virtual format. More details regarding how to access the training, when it will be available, etc… will be forthcoming from Katie Conrad, FCS Extension Specialist.
