TEAM skills

Train the trainer: becoming a dynamic facilitator in research


To help participants design and deliver appealing and useful classes.




All PRBB with training responsibilities or teaching assignments.


At some point in their career, many scientists have to facilitate groups or take over teaching responsibilities. Being an excellent researcher is no guarantee to effective knowledge transfer in the classroom. Specific skills must be developed in order to make every session dynamic, memorable and successful.

This workshop will support participants to develop the skills, techniques and personal attitudes for succeeding in their training assignments.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Reflect on own teaching/facilitating style.
  • Identify best practices for making classes and workshops more dynamic, memorable and successful.
  • Get to know and practice several types of exercises and group dynamics that can be used in various group facilitation scenarios.

The course consists of several sessions. You should be able to attend all of them.

Study commitment

All participants must have in mind a training intervention (workshop, course, class) on any topic, and send a draft outline in advance.
