The tools, templates and resources in this toolkit were compiled and developed by the CBR team at Access Alliance based on half a decade of implementing CBR projects. The CBR team at Access Alliance realized early on that having solid CBR training and tools was crucial to the success of its CBR projects. Thus, the team made it a priority to build CBR training and tools. In 2006, we created a part-time in-house researcher trainer position whose task was to develop innovative CBR training materials and tools and to deliver CBR training to peer researchers and other partners as per the need of our CBR projects. We also hired a consultant from the Catalyst Centre (Matthew Adams) to ground our CBR training and tools in a popular education framework.
