Tentative Agenda

The training will start with an intensive day of lectures/discussions, followed by exercises that you will do on your own, with daily touch-base meetings.

Items that are bolded are live meetings. Items that are italicized are in informal groups with peers, but live (in person or on Zoom). Other items are on your own time, but the time slot is the suggested time you should be doing them.

If you have not received an invitation and you think you should have, contact LDI.
