OES Highlights anchored on the theme:
“Embracing the future perspectives of Extension Services: Forging new partnerships and building local capacities for inclusive growth and development.”
This year‟s extension highlights is designed towards opening up the gateway towards building the foundations for more strengthened collaboration with education partners here and abroad. A pool of faculty experts and esteemed evaluators are invited to provide inputs gaining new insights on the latest trends in the conduct of locally sustainable extension programs/projects.
This also becomes an avenue to effectively disseminate the extension accomplishments/ best practices of the College helping the SSC project teams to become fully abreast with the latest developments within the practice of the field.
The winners in the paper presentations are endorsed by the College for various extension presentations and conventions at higher levels. Further, it aims to identify the projects that could be effectively adopted by a larger community groups.
In addition, it aims to determine which project could be supported in a macro level that would boost sustainability in various aspects addressing the local demands and at par with the international standards.
Apart from recognizing best extension practices, this year‟s OES highlights will also include the “Executives‟ Session”. This activity would gather all the SSC Extension key players and partners in a round table discussion with the local chief executives, planning officers, academicians and SSC administrators in a convergence initiative while providing insights in strengthening partnerships, highlighting the new extension services modalities that could be worked for, in the attainment of the mission and leveraging out plans for the inclusive growth and development of the Sorsogueños.
