Course announcement

Tony O'Hagan and colleagues will be running three days of tuition on Expert Knowledge Elicitation with SHELF, on 8-10 January 2018, at the School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. Synopsis

The first two days will comprise a comprehensive short course, Elicitation with SHELF. The 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, 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.

Additional course. Because of the high level of interest, the Advanced Facilitation day will be repeated on 22 January.
