Activity Synopsis (ID# 32459) (Hide Synopsis)

Output/Results The training seminar was designed to equip the participants with the necessary skills to develop and deliver effective seminars in law reform and practice, taking into account the learning styles and needs of judges and prosecutors. Thus, during the seminar the CoE experts (two UK lawyers) have shared with the Moldovan counterparts a multitude of training and questioning methods and techniques based on the Kolb Cycle (a learning styles model and experiential learning theory), and multiple intelligences, methods of organisation of practical trainings. The experts also provided the participants with a Workbook for Training within the Moldovan Criminal Justice System and tools, developed by them specially for the training seminar and designed to facilitate the training sessions and increase their efficiency. 
Conclusions/Follow Up Judges and prosecutors are familiarised with modern teaching techniques. They have been enabled to improve their skills in conducting good quality training sessions, such as planning and organising training sessions, creating appropriate learning environments and providing clear outlines of the training programmes and their contents etc.

At the request of the National Institute of Justice, two more training sessions, covering other 40 judges and prosecutors, were carried out on 3-7 October and 10-14 October 2011.
