Meet Our Team (post 2 of 3)

Our first 'meet the team' post was a big hit, or maybe it was just Ernie's Instagram account :)

Read on to learn more about the team members in Extension Technology. Introducing .... Patrice, Terri, and Libby!

Patrice Johnson, business analyst / registration What do you like best about Extension and/or Ext Tech? The people I work with! And the programs!
What’s a favorite project you’ve worked on?  Getting registration up and running back in the day. It was a brand new project and we started from scratch. I like feeling that I contributed to an important and successful service.
If you had to eat one thing for every meal going forward, what would you eat?  Pizza or tacos (as long as I could vary the ingredients on/in them). Or popovers filled with creme fraiche, cured salmon, and caviar.

What do you like to do outside work? Write, cook, and teach (I cook and teach to support my writing habit.). I also have a wicked TV viewing habit and book collection.
What’s something most…

Bite Size Tips via YouTube

This is the sixth portfolio piece from our archive! If you've missed any, you can always find them here. I hope they've helped you start thinking about the tech-supported opportunities you can dig into too. Next time, I'm looking forward to sharing a project I've been working on, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here's another project the team worked on a while back.

Leadership and Civic Engagement Bite Size Tips via YouTube

The Leadership and Civic Engagement team wanted a way to boost their online presence, build their resources for multimedia integration into curriculum, and experiment with video technologies. So their project team worked with the Extension Technology team to develop a simple, inexpensive workflow for creating “bite-sized” (one tip each) videos for YouTube. The first five videos were created using equipment that can be checked out through the Extension Technology loan program, and a new iPad app for using a green screen. The team will evaluate the project and, if it is found to be accomplishing their objectives, the team is well-equipped to keep up this process themselves.

This project was selected through the Extension e-Learning Proposal Process. We work with Extension Educators, Program Staff, and Faculty who offer training or education, like the Turf and Ground Field Day, Equine Demonstrations, the Local Foods College, the Serve it Up Safely Course, and the Master Gardener Core Course. They are ready to expand their reach, make education more accessible, and/or collaborate with colleagues and community members at a distance. If this is you and you’re ready for help, contact us for a consultation or propose a project!
