Words from those who've done it (and loved it)

"This was a wonderful opportunity to connect with dynamic individuals from all over the world and brainstorm about ways to improve and reinvent education in the 21st century. I've taken away new techniques and ideas that I can implement immediately with my own university students."

- Kristen Palana, Digital Media & Animation Specialist at United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), USA/ Malawi

"This course allowed opportunities for team building, critical thinking, problem solving, cultural competence, and the practice of authentic leadership skills to define a vision and reach common objectives. I left feeling inspired and more passionate about driving durable changes at the local level and with a global reach!"

– Alba Diaz/ University Professor
