The project includes a new MFLN concentration area, Transition Support for Families, which will be led by Sara Croymans, Extension Educator — Family Resiliency. The Transition Support for Families Area of Concentration staff will identify, develop and deliver professional development, resources and tools to increase the capacity, knowledge, and skills of a range of public and private staff who share research findings, resources, and best practices with military service members and families. "Ask an Expert" and other content will be delivered through the following communication channels:
- Blog posts to engage a community of professional learners through online interactions and discussions
- Print content (fact sheets, briefs, infographics, interactive flyers)
- Online mini course/learning modules using Moodle
- Video and/or audio channels, such as podcasts, Google Hangout, Camtasia Studio, Sparkol, Plotagon, and YouTube
Thank you to Sara, Mary Jo Katras, Ellie, Karen, and Trish for their work on this grant from MFLN!
