CDISC International Interchange 2012 initiated with one of the most interesting educational sessions that I have ever attended in a very long while, Train the Trainer session! The session took place on Sunday, 21 October 2012 at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel in Baltimore, MD. This course was developed specifically for CDISC authorized instructors so that CDISC training can be delivered in the best possible way to our members and stakeholders.
The session was tailored to train instructors and presenters on global teaching and presentation skills that would motivate and stimulate the profound attention of the attendees in the material delivered. The session started at 9:00 AM and was supposed to end at 5:00 PM, but it did not end until 5:45 PM where active participation and excitement of discovery kept the attendees interested until the last minute. Attendees, who are also CDISC instructors were urged to participate continuously, analyze and discover new ideas and training methods throughout the day. Creative and positive input led to self-discovery of new teaching techniques, this atmosphere of active and analytical participation helped the attendees discover a new variety of interesting and exciting teaching methods even before they received instructions and notes from the instructor.
