It will be based on the very successful training we gave in January 2018, but with a few improvements.
The first two days, 3-4 September, will comprise a comprehensive short course, Elicitation with SHELF. This course will cover the principles of expert elicitation and the SHELF method, together with practical considerations in planning and running a SHELF elicitation workshop.
The key role in the SHELF method is that of the facilitator. The third day, Advanced Facilitation on 5 September, will be an intensive, small group, hands-on session for participants who wish to be trained to act as facilitators. Each trainee will gain practical experience of facilitating a SHELF elicitation workshop, using carefully designed and realistic scenarios. Trainees will also gain experience in another important role, that of recorder.
Attendance is limited to four trainees, and so we expect to repeat the Advanced Facilitation day on 6 September for another four trainees.
Course fees are set out in the table. Early bird rates apply for registration up to July 31st.

As soon as sufficient numbers are registered the courses will be confirmed, at which point you will be asked to make a firm commitment.
The venue is in the centre of Sheffield, and there are several other hotels nearby.
