The first five keys (GREAT) are about how we interact with the outside world in our daily activities. They are based on the Five Ways to Wellbeing developed as part of the Foresight Project. The second five keys (DREAM) come from inside us and depend on our attitude to life.
Train the Trainers (TTT):
The Train the Trainers (TTT) is a highly successful program designed to disseminate teaching skills to those gastroenterologists who hold training positions in their own countries. Delegates are equipped with both skills and tools which they can then implement on their home ground. Not only has this workshop been enthusiastically received by all WGO member societies around the world, it continues to provide an excellent forum for the exchange of ideas and the establishment of contacts between various countries, in an environment which is conducive to learning .
Since its inception in 2001, WGO has held over 20 workshops throughout the world. TTT is a four-day annual workshop that is limited to 50 participants who are nominated by their GI Society so as to ensure that we are reaching out to the educators.
The basis and success of the TTT is that it is designed to bring together trainers from across the globe in an intensive and interactive workshop, dedicated to the development of teaching and training skills. The workshop format is structured around 17 modules introduced via lectures, which then leads to related discussion groups and are concluded by presentations on the topics from the participants. Incorporated into the program are also recreational team-building activities that offer valuable opportunities for participants to become acquainted outside of the educational focus of the program.
Not one TTT workshop is the same as the last, and as the years have passed we have often changed the modules as well as the content within the modules. These changes have been made as a result of feedback and current knowledge has advanced. We all learn together.
