    Successful training course held on facilitation and moderation skills

    Facilitation and moderation skills galore at this recent training course!

    The training course on facilitation and moderation skills took place successfully at DANS, the Dutch national centre of expertise and repository for research data, on 7-8 July.

    This course, jointly organised by EOSC-Life and EOSC Future, trained participants on how to:

    • Employ strategies to facilitate and prepare their sessions
    • Use their facilitation skills with confidence
    • Identify when and how to intervene
    • Create a positive environment

    Participants also successfully tackled how to design sessions to meet their specific objective, learning how to

    • Define the audience and optimise the format and agenda
    • Ensure inclusivity by design and appropriate facilitation techniques
    • Achieve real engagement

    After the course, 75% of the participants ranked the course as ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ (4 or 5 out of 5), and all the participants acknowledged that there had been plenty of opportunity for interaction.

    The organizers sincerely thank the excellent trainer Sandra Barth and all the attendees for their active participation!


    “Thanks for arranging a training for such a central topic which is still not always being spoken about from a training perspective and as an opportunity to discuss and grow”
