21 WORLD GASTROENTEROLOGY NEWS AUGUST 2015 Editorial | Expert Point of View | Gastro 2015: AGW/WGO | WDHD News | WGO & WGOF News | WGO Global Guidelines | Calendar of Events On the final day, the workshop quiz was a very nice arrangement for summarizing all the module contents in an interactive and entertaining way. We must say that TTT is a very well designed workshop and I will be happy to share my experience with my colleagues as well as introduce this activity to them. To tell the truth, I have never been a person that enjoys “boy scout-style” activities, with people gathering together and doing some work or games. I have never imagined that I could have such a chance to enjoy the learning activities with many col-leagues around the world at this age, but I have to say that I really enjoyed my days in TTT. When I listened to the lecture of the adult education module, I learned that adult learning is most successful only if the learn-ing goal is clear, the learner is actively involved and feels it useful. Although this is a basic in teaching, we are too much accustomed to the “routine” or “ordinary” way of teaching. Herein I am also very exciting to let WGO know that I have already applied what I have learned in the TTT in my teaching activities and daily practice after coming back from the workshop. In the dinner party on the final day, the atmosphere was full of joy. I could feel that all the participants were ful-filled with what we had learned over the past few days and found friend-ship in this terrific activity. At that moment, all the participants were like a family and I began to feel unwilling to leave. I must say the workshop was very successful and most importantly has changed our minds. When I met by chance one of our teammates one month later at the Digestive Disease Week in Washington, DC I even felt a bit nostalgic about TTT! Finally, I would like to express my sincere thanks to both WGO and the American College for Gastroenterol-ogy (ACG) as well as the Gastroen-terological Society of Taiwan (GEST) for providing such a fruitful program and also for the thorough arrange-ment, which could not be achieved without the effort of every faculty and the secretariat staff. I also hope all the participants enjoyed the training and learning in the workshop, refreshed their thought on teaching, and had an enjoyable memory in Taiwan! Cheers to our friendship and viva TTT!
