    Description

    The National Advanced Silviculture Program (NASP) is composed of four national modules and one regional or local module. The University of Minnesota hosted the Lake States Regional Module in 2018. We implemented changes to how the program was offered, including broadening the participant pool and shifting the delivery method. Broadening the participation pool allowed for greater collaboration among agencies. The blended delivery method, half online and half in-person, reduced costs, reduced length of travel for participants, and made resources such as reports, documents, maps, more easily accessible in participants’ offices. We utilized multiple methods of active learning during the online sessions and focused on field activities and field trips when meeting in person. Overall, participants gave high ratings to the 2018 offering both in terms of content and effective delivery.
