Panelists for Cooperative Extension Horizon Report

New Media Consortium LogoThe eXtension Foundation and the ECOP Innovation Task Force are partnering with The New Media Consortium (NMC) to develop a custom Horizon Report for Cooperative Extension. This important futuring report will be developed by a panel of 56 experts who will look out five years to identify key emerging technologies and methodologies and how they may impact Extension. Leadership of this initiative is shared by Drs. Jerry Thomas and Christine Geith of eXtension and Dr. Keith Smith, Chair of the Innovation Task Force. The 56 panelists, who will spend the summer collaborating on the report in a wiki environment, are listed below. The report is scheduled for completion in September 2016.
