Trainer Notes

Have the recorders present their notes from the presentation and ask each process observer to comment on the meeting.

Discuss the session by raising the following questions:

* Did speakers keep to the issues and follow presentation guidelines?
* How do you feel about your role as a Volunteer in relation to issues raised?
* To what degree can we generalize about each of these issues?
* Did you learn about issues (or parts thereof) previous, unknown to you?
* What were effective ways people presented information?
