In anticipation of EBS adoption activities in 2024, the training aims to further develop the facilitation skills of key team members involved in training and overall user support. EBS is currently on the move to onboard more crop research centers and National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (NARES) partners.
Data managers, Michael Reyes and Ricardo Apolinario, Jr., and BDS Administrative Coordinator, Renz Fuentes, attended the training as part of their professional development. They were joined by participants from other private organizations.
The training provided in-depth coverage on the concepts and theories, including deductive and inductive methods on training presentation and facilitation. The BDS team representatives actively participated in hands-on activities individually and in their respective groups. This included demonstrating their current speaking and facilitation skills. Participants were also challenged to present their own topics on the last day of the session. Reyes delivered a topic on staying motivated while working from home. Apolinario and Fuentes discussed ChatGPT and Jira Software, respectively.
