Thank you, Kate Rushton Hi Anne, Your idea sounds fantastic and thanks to you for your work in this crucial area. In the realm of training, I noticed that you have mentioned the importance of face-to-face training and certifications as well as technological training interventions. I had a couple of questions about that. 1. In the user map, you have talked about an online training platform, do you have any more information on how you are thinking that through? Are you planning on a custom solution or planning to use an existing LMS or platform? 2. In the certification model, do you have ongoing conversations with universities etc? 3. How are you using the training to build community? 4. What's the feedback model you are thinking about using to evaluate the impact of the training? For the Future of Higher Ed Challenge that we participated in, we submitted Impact College (http://impact.college/) which provides a training deployment platform + instructional design + animation, etc services to social impact orgs with training as a part of their programs. That's the context in which I am asking you these questions. Again, great work, this is such a critical field. Thank you, D
