EXCELERATE Train-the -Trainer workshop | Cambridge

April 24 - April 25

Together with Sarah Morgan, the Training Programme Manager at EMBL-EBI, we will be running a “Train the Trainer” event at the University of Cambridge on April 24-25.

This course aims to provide new trainers with guidance and tips for developing and delivering training in bioinformatics, exploring a range of methods appropriate to different learning styles and examining the requirements for a successful course (both scientific and logistic).

During this course you will learn about:

  • What is training, why do we do it
  • What makes good and bad training?
  • What skills do you need to be a good trainer?
  • How people learn – learning styles
  • Catering for different learning styles
  • Session / course planning: aims and learning outcomes/finding materials
  • Feedback – how to get it, what to do with it

Overall, we aim at providing:

  • guidance on general training techniques and appropriate use of methods based on learner needs, including some general do’s and do not’s for successful training
  • a framework for successful curriculum design and further development, to enable trainers to build a course appropriate to their learner’s needs

12 places are available on this course and it would be nice to have a good representation from the UK.
