Ask the Expert!
Trainers' Week offered participants a unique opportunity to ask our panel of experts anything they like about all aspects of being a Cochrane Trainer. Trainers could ask anything they liked about delivering Cochrane learning; whether that was an interest in how to deal with difficult learners, or heterogeneous groups, or how to tackle afternoon sleepiness amongst learners...
Our panel was chosen to provide specific expertise in didactic (teaching) skills, Cochrane methods and using social media as a learning tool.
