Session Description

Whether a trainer teaches specific topic such as digital security, or takes the holistic approach, it hard to determine if there's one best way for teaching complex concepts in an effective manner. A method that works in one context may not fare well in another. This workshop will invite seasoned and aspiring trainers from around the world to collaborate into combining experiences and come up with model training modules, thereby starting a process. The main objectives of this workshop will be three-pronged. 1. Share various structures for adult learning, especially success stories 2. Crowd source experiences and work in groups to develop training sessions that can be presented and critiqued upon 3. Start a process that enables trainers to emerge above their individual environments of practice, and mix and match each other's experiences and techniques to improve upon their existing methodologies.
