Bureau of Land Management's Oregon State Office is hosting a Train the (metadata) Trainer workshop December 1-3, 2009 in Portland, Oregon.  The registration for this workshop is reserved for BLM personel and partners.  Lynda Wayne, GeoMaxim-FGDC and Viv Hutchison, USGS-NBII are the trainers for this event.   Train the Trainer courses require existing knowledge of geospatial metadata standards.  Train the Trainer Workshops are designed to give participants the tools they need to lead successful workshops. In this two and a half day workshop, participants will learn techniques and skills that can be used to make their future training session informative and worthwhile. Suggestions for creating a positive learning environment, such as "ice-breaker" games and situational role plays are passed on to participants. Other techniques such as how to create a constructive lesson plan and positive ways to handle disruptive students are also introduced.  Students will have an opportunity to put their new training skills into practice during various demonstrations and interactive presentations focused around the metadata topic. Train the Trainer participants complete the workshop prepared with new teaching techniques and an outline for a constructive lesson plan for training sessions they will teach in the future.
