dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to describe the knowledge, perception and methods most used by the Agricultural Agents and Home Economists of the Mayaguez Region. For this study there was a participation of nineteen Agricultural Agents and twelve Home Economists with forty-two years of experience in their specialization area. The majority of the participants have a Masters degree and they understand that it is good to know educational methods so they can offer more information to their clients, but they indicated that they use farm visits and workshops because the interaction with their clients is important and their clients prefer the workshops and farm visits. Participants indicated lack of knowledge of what is a “homemade study kit” and “teletype messages”. The lack of money, time, and knowledge do not allow them to use new methods and are barriers for not knowing and using new methods. Both groups demonstrated in a test a low knowledge about methods but wish to receive more information to know new methods because are important to impact their clients. Besides, they indicated that they prefer to receive information through training and written information or the Internet. It is recommended to offer training to the Extension Agent about different educational methods that were presented in this study.
dc.description.abstractEl propósito del estudio fue describir el conocimiento, la percepción y los métodos más utilizados por los Agentes Agrícolas y Economistas del Hogar del Servicio de Extensión Agrícola de la Región de Mayagüez. Diez y nueve Agentes Agrícolas y 12 Economistas del Hogar participaron con 42 años de experiencia en el área de su especialidad. La gran mayoría posee Maestría y entienden que es bueno conocer los métodos educativos para poder ofrecer mayor información a la clientela. Pero indicaron que utilizan visitas al campo y talleres porque la interacción con el cliente es importante y sus clientes prefieren los talleres y las visitas a la finca. Señalaron no conocer los que es el “kit casero de estudio” y los “mensajes de teletipo”. La falta de dinero, tiempo y conocimiento no les permiten utilizar nuevos métodos y son una barrera para no conocer y utilizar nuevos métodos. Ambos grupos presentaron en un examen un bajo conocimiento sobre los métodos pero desean recibir mayor información para conocer los métodos porque es importante para impactar mejor a su clientela. Además indicaron preferir recibir información mediante adiestramientos e información escrita o en la Internet. Se recomienda ofrecer adiestramiento a los extensionistas sobre los diferentes métodos educativos que se presentaron en este estudio.
