Importance of Staff Training

Research has shown that high-quality 4-H programming requires effective professional development of educators. The availability of effective professional development is critical to enhance their competencies (Garst et al., 2014). Furthermore, effective professional development can help advance educators’ abilities to facilitate learning experiences by improving their content knowledge, understanding of desired learning outcomes and pedagogy (Barker, Grandgenett, & Nugent, 2009; Hunzicker, 2011, Smith, 2013).
