Carleton University hosted a CBRET workshop in Ottawa and the day was a success! 16 people came to the workshop and shared their experiences and feedback on the tool.
On the evaluation form, all participants reported that the workshop gave them the opportunity to gain from others (86% very satisfied and 14% satisfied). One person made the comment, “The openness of the facilitators allowed us to share our views, knowledge, and questions with them as well as among ourselves.” Another person commented that the tool was “very useful as a take home package.” In response to the question about how the workshop could have been better, some people wrote that they would have liked more examples, others wanted more time on the tool, and another person wished for more small group discussions.
