The ORION ‘Train-the-Trainer’ course was developed to help Open Science advocates and stakeholders learn from the training that has been delivered throughout the project and equip them with the skills to run their own training.
The online course was created on OpenLearnCreate, a platform created and hosted by the Open University. It was divided into two modules: Theory and Methods. The theory module focused on conveying the principles of Adult Education, for example identifying audiences, focusing on participants’ needs, and selecting material. The methods module focused on formats and activities that can be utilised to create online and offline training, for example, the FOSTER card exchange, a brainwalking activity, improving webinar experiences, and evaluating training.
