Health Literacy Train the Trainer Workshop

Health Literacy Train the Trainer Workshop

  2 days

  Appropriate for clinical educators

This workshop will prepare educators to deliver the Health Literacy Overview, the half-day Workshop for Front-Line Clinicians and the one day Workshop for Clinical Educators and Health Literacy Leads.

During the first part of the train the trainer course, learners walk through the Health Literacy face-to-face workshops that they will be teaching step-by-step, participating in the activities with a trainer’s perspective. There will be facilitated discussions throughout to help them analyse and understand why the activities are designed the way they are, and they will have time to ask questions about facilitating specific parts of the workshops as they come up. They will also learn how to customize the workshops based on their audience and time constraints. They will also discuss teaching tools and approaches before taking time to plan their own next steps. 

The major assignment for the course will be to lead a practice teaching session, where trainees will be assigned a section of the course material to teach the class. This will give them an opportunity to practice in a safe environment and receive feedback from their instructor and their peers. 

Successful trainees will come away with hard copies and online access to resources for conducting their own workshops (including a PowerPoint presentation, handouts, and a customizable training plan). 

Capacity for this course is 6-12/instructor. Contact us for more information about how to arrange for your group to take this course.
