The Oak Project - Resources

Suggested Topics and Resources for the Oak Project Pairings

  1. Feel free to tailor this program to your pairing as much as possible. You can use a different resource for a topic or create your own topics as you see fit.
  2. We suggest that at your first meeting you discuss the topics you would like to cover.
