Developing and designing training materials
Epiconcept prepared an outline of the training to identify key learning objectives, the target audience and their anticipated knowledge and skill levels, and proposed pedagogic approaches. All exercises and case studies were based on the ECDC team datasets.
Delivering online R training sessions
Epiconcept delivered on-line R training sessions for a maximum of 20 ECDC experts on a videoconference platform allowing a good interaction with participants: sharing screens simultaneously, breaking participants in several rooms, allowing remote control of participants' computers if necessary, creating polls, recording the session for further use, etc.
