dc.description.abstract <p>Extension staff and faculty generally come to their Extension careers with technical content knowledge and lack the skills necessary for engaging the adult learner, thus a need arises for educational tools on engaging adult learners for Extension. A brief overview of Extension history followed by a literature review focused on andragogy, Extension education methods, and various educational activities and methods provides the basis of the project. The results of the literature review produced four tools adult educators can use to add variety to adult education programs and further engage adult learners. The products, quick start guides to a flipped classroom, audience response systems, structured networking, and learning by doing, are followed with a caution in tool selection. The paper is concluded by recommendations in tool usage and a holistic reflection of the writer’s graduate program.</p>
