Re: [Scouter_T] Re: New Cub Basic Training Program
- I was having an email conversation with my DE and he has checked with some of his compatriots at the district. Neither he nor his buddies is aware of anything. Weird, but perhaps not that strange considering all the hype about OWL... (and the final release that was not very different from the prior syllabus.)
What I'd like to see is the elimination of watching the same videos for 5 different classes. Let's call it CUB-NLE and show them once. Then the classes could be edited for position specific info - and run 1-1/2 to 2 hrs. Maybe 2-1/2.
On the idea of NLE as an online course, I think that NLE should be more than just reading the slides - on the part of the participant.

Cub training. His reply was that National was "working" on changes
(& had been for a number of years), but that nothing was set in stone
as of yet.

enough to arrive on time.
