Principles of Teaching and Learning - for Extension

How we teach, regardless of the audience or the subject matter, must be based in the science of how people learn. Research has identified a series of principles of teaching and learning that help guide field agents and others in how they plan for and conduct educational programs. Further, research has shown clear linkages between what teachers do (their behavior) and how well the learners or clients learn. In this paper we will discuss various principles and teacher behaviors and propose how field agents and other instructional staff can build upon them to be more effective teachers and knowledge brokers.
