The purpose of the grant is to interview stakeholders, primariy in the School of Education, to see what innovative and realistic options, given current conditions, may be available to promote global competence in preservice and inservice programs. Are there options that also may be able to generate new revenue streams? Are there formats (certificates, digital badges, etc,) in addition to traditional courses that may help generated demand?
