Image "Being able to review the first four lessons, how they are set up, the way in which the EiE process works, etc, was incredibly valuable. I didn't feel overwhelmed with a brand new curriculum and the digital aspect of it, but rather I was able to review the curriculum, ask questions, get hands on with both the paper and digital aspect, etc. This training was awesome!"
