The Open Team are evaluation meetings by the training team after each work day that two or three participants can join. The Open Team gives the team an opportunity to hear suggestions and questions that arose during the day/training and to talk to individuals about them so that the programme can be adapted as necessary. Participants can also be present for the training team’s evaluation day.
Type of exercise:
We used the Open Team at the Training for Trainers, where there was a significant interest in it. It served the function of familiarising the participants with the nature of the evening evaluations which are a necessary part of the trainers’ work. It is very important to limit the duration of the Open Team so that participants and trainers are not exhausted. After the Open Team, the training team still has to prepare workshops for the next day.
