What is the change you are designing to achieve?
To help women in agriculture reduce their risk of extreme weather conditions on their farm. We have chosen to deliver this information in the form of a course.
How will you measure that change?
Through a pre and post action checklists, in course quizzes and a post course survey.
What is the innovative component or strategy you will implement as a result of the design-a-thon?
Targeting “women in agriculture” and tailoring this course for our unique target audience.
How did the design-a-thon help you?
Virginia said: Broadened my thinking about how to approach this project.
Jerri said: The design-a-thon forced us to look at the big picture and pick a tiny portion of the picture for our project.
We will develop a competency-based module (Farm and Ranch Premises Weather Security 101) that focuses on practical steps producers can take to prepare and protect property from the impacts of extreme weather.
