This time we focused on two new methods – Role play and Evaluation.

Afterwards, the participants were presented with instance of Evaluation method and it all ended with trainers offering an example of Evaluation method (in this case Pizza evaluation) where participants were asked to evaluate the trainers, atmosphere and group dynamics of the whole day.
