It is that time of year again! Time to think about bettering yourself through OSU Extension’s online course “Leadership in the City.” If you are debating signing up, ask yourself these questions:
- Are you interested in Extension in urban areas?
- Are you ready to improve your knowledge, skills, and results?
- Do you want to expand your support network?
By participating in the Leadership in the City online course, you will have the opportunity to further your development as a professional, discover yourself as a leader, gain networking opportunities, and learn about innovation and management techniques. This online program will prepare you as an Extension professional to be relevant locally, responsive statewide, and recognized nationally.
The program was developed based on a foundation of entrepreneurial theory and urban Extension practice and will build upon existing leadership experiences, management training, and Extension professional development.
You will learn from experienced leaders; apply what you learn in your city, region, or state; engage in critical thinking and creative problem solving; and participate in online collaborative learning. Each competency-based module incorporates interactive digital delivery and the flipped classroom model for active learning and engagement.
Through this course, you will meet peers from across the country and develop a plan and portfolio of resources to improve your leadership ability and community conditions.
This course is led by Dr. Julie Fox from Ohio State University Extension
