The chapter discusses the design and development of a training course in structured expert judgement (SEJ). We begin by setting the course in the context of previous experiences in training SEJ to postgraduates, early career researchers and consultants. We motivate our content, discussing the theoretical framework that guides the design of such a course. We describe our experiences in presenting the course on two occasions. Detailed analysis of the different course components—the learners/participants, the content, the context and the method, was carried out through surveys given to participants. This helped identify the successful course characteristics, which were then summarised in a customised design template that can be used to guide its conceptual, structural and navigation design.
