Useful information for participants can be found below:
1) Summer School Programme - Summer%20School%202016%20Programmev6.pdf
Things to note about the programme:
a) This programme is pretty much final - any minor changes that need to be made will be announced at the Summer School.
b) If you are unsure about the slot or theme you've been allocated, please contact me (email@example.com) or one of your MOP's key contacts (AHRI - Janet Seeley; Ethox - Mike Parker; KEMRI-WT - Sassy Molyneux/Vicki Marsh; MLW - Nicola Desmond/Kate Gooding; MORU: Phaik Yeong Cheah; OUCRU: Mary Chambers).
c) You don't need to print this out - a copy will be provided for you at the Summer School.
d) In an effort to ensure there is as much time as possible for discussion/debate/exchange of ideas, we have tried to keep presentation times short. Most presentations will only be 5 mins long. Please note that the times listed in the programme for presentations are the MAXIMUM times provided. Please do your best to make your presentation shorter than the time allocated to it as that will provide us with even more discussion time. It would be great if you could focus on just one aspect of your work, or one activity, in order to stay within your time limit. Time-keepers have been allocated to each session to help us stay on track.
e) We suggest that the overview presentations from each site on Day 1 are carried out in Pecha Kucha format. For those of you unfamiliar with this format, it is a presentation style where 20 images are shown for 20 seconds each. This will allow us to see lots of photos of our sites! And it will keep our overviews short and concise. For more on Pecha Kucha, see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PechaKucha.
(The key to successful Pecha Kucha presentations is practice, so do try to practice your presentation a couple of times before the Summer School!)
f) You do not need to have a PowerPoint slide presentation for your talk. However, if you do use slides, try to use our 'GHBN slide template' if at all possible (a link is below).
2) Welcome Letter for Participants (containing information on airport pick-up, emergency contacts, and other useful information). Please read! 2016GHBNWelcome_letter_18Sept2016.pdf

5) List of Critical Friends: List%20of%20Critical%20friendsv3.pdf
Everyone presenting at the Summer School (even if your presentation is only 5 mins long!) has been assigned a 'critical friend' (CF). Your role as a CF is to provide feedback to the presenter on their presentation - point out the things that worked, but also the things that could be improved. The person you give feedback to will also, in turn, give you feedback on your presentation. We are always learning and improving, and giving each other honest and supportive feedback can be very useful. At the 2015 Summer School, we tried out the 'critical friend' idea for the first time, and it proved to be enormously popular. We hope you will enjoy this exercise, but if you do not wish to participate in it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will take you off the list.
We look forward to seeing you in Kilifi!
