The first annual Human Factors Recurrent Workshop for Trainers and Instructors held on October 24th, 2012 in Myrtle Beach, SC, USA was a success, according to the organizers. Delegates from around the world converged for the one-day event at the beautiful oceanfront Marriott Resort and Spa at Grand Dunes. The focus of the first workshop was, “How to Effectively Facilitate and Measure the Objectives of Human Factors Training Events.” Upon conclusion, the organizers said delegates provided very favorable feedback and indicated their interest in attending the next workshop which will occur in Myrtle Beach in October 2013.
“I was very encouraged by the turnout and optimism displayed by the attendees. This was a one-of-a kind recurrent HF workshop that went above and beyond a rehash of basic information,” says Dr. Bob Baron, TACG president. “Instead, the workshop focused on high-level thinking and sharing of ideas that undoubtedly helped them to improve their own courses and facilitation styles.” The event touched on topics such as:
• Management buy-in and visibility
• Quantifying and evaluating the effects of HF training
• How culture affects HF training
• Return on investment
• Facilitation methods that work (and some that don’t)
