Train the Trainer for Image Analysts

Thu 30 May - Fri 31 May 2019

Description

This course aims to provide trainers with guidance and tips for developing and delivering training in image analysis, exploring a range of methods appropriate to different learning styles and examining the requirements for a successful course (both scientific and logistic).

The first part of the course will give participants principles of training theory and best practises for developing and delivering their future training content; the second part will be a hackathon to kick start the development of a common set of training materials in image analysis.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Image Analysis Focused Interest Group and is supported by the Royal Microscopical Society.

The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
