This virtual workshop takes place within the X-meeting eXperience 2020. It will provide new trainers with knowledge, skills, guidance and tips for developing and delivering training. Participants will explore a range of methods to enable and encourage learning, examine the requirements for a successful course and acquire appropriate feedback.
The workshop will:
Provide guidance on general training techniques and appropriate use of methods based on learner needs, including some general 'DO's' and 'DO NOTs' for successful training
Provide a framework for successful curriculum design and further development, to enable trainers to build a course appropriate to their learners' needs
The workshop will take place virtually via Zoom.
This is a highly interactive virtual workshop which will be delivered in Portuguese. Applications are open for researchers based in Latin America.

They are actively involved in a research project and actively using bioinformatics tools / methods
They have a strong interest in training and have been involved in some training prior to joining the course
They have identified a need / gap where training could be provided, and have thought about potential training they would like to deliver
The ideal candidate will have 3+ years of research experience which includes a bioinformatics component, and a strong interest in developing or delivering bioinformatics training. Nonetheless, you do NOT have to be a bioinformatician to apply.
