Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Training (incubating) Proposal
Date Mon, 04 Feb 2019 09:20:27 GMT
Dmitry, Kenneth,

sorry for the slow replies. I was offline on vacation for a few days. I'll
add both of you to the Wiki (if you haven't already done so).

I love that we have gathered quite a few interested people to participate
already but I'd love to hear more (or any really) opinions on the proposal
itself as well as the route it should go.

I'm now leaning in favor of straight-to-TLP. I know we don't have any fixed
duration for DISCUSS threads and discussion has died down but I don't
really want to close it yet so I'll wait at least until the end of the week
before starting any potential next steps.

> I'm not a professional teacher or trainer, but I have been a part of
preparing and delivering a number of trainings and talks  (also the usual
teaching, tutoring, talking in grad school FWIW) and I love it.

I assume (haven't checked) that this is the background of most of us. It
certainly is mine as well. So that should not be a problem at all!

Cheers,
Lars
