Creating your own training course

  1. Download the Q Cheat Sheets and modify them to meet your needs.
  2. Prepare a training plan. A good strategy for doing this is:
    • Identify a data set you wish to use for the training. Ideally, you want a data set that allows you to demonstrate all topics on the Q Cheat Sheets that you wish to cover in the training.
    • Set up the data yourself, working your way through Basic Workflow For Checking and Cleaning a Project, making sure you can identify and can resolve any issues that will arise during the training.
    • Make a copy of the Q Cheat Sheets, or, a new document, which clearly links each of the topics that you wish to cover in the cheat sheets with the best example in the questionnaire.
    • Have the training plan in a way that permits you to check off things as you go, so you can easily see any topics that need to be covered. Generally, this means either printing it out or using a program like OneNote which allows you to have tick boxes.
  3. Make sure that you can see the screens of people that you are training, and regularly check that everybody is caught up, as if you instead just "broadcast" (e.g., show a series of slides, or, demonstrate what you are doing), generally people will only tell you they are lost when it is too late to recover.
  4. During the training work your way through the training plan, crossing off topics as you complete them.
