The LISTEN Model:

Participants of the LISTEN Project will first take a pre-program survey. Next they will complete Modules 1 (Information Seeking/Information Technology) and Module 2 (Information Application/Information Technology).† Modules are designed to be completed online at the participantsí leisure.† If participants choose, group training and classes will be offered at various times.† Once Modules 1 and 2 are completed, participants will be asked to complete a post-program survey.† Continuing education credits will be offered.
