Training of Trainers: A manual for training facilitators in participatory teaching techniques
Trainers learn the principles of adult education and why they are important for trainers. They learn how to create a positive and productive learning environment for training adults, plan and organize training effectively, listen actively, use good communication skills, give constructive feedback, and identify potential challenges to delivering effective training and potential solutions.
During the training trainers first experience and then practice using the following methodologies: small group activity, large group activity, small group discussion, large group discussion, brainstorm, role play, case study, reflection Journey, and demonstration.
Facilitator Manual: contains all of the information needed to carry out the training, including preparation and material lists, step-by-step instructions for leading training sessions, pre- and post-tests, and all content from the Participant Handbook.
Participant Handbook: contains all of the content that participants are trained on (text and illustrations) and also any case studies, scenarios, small group discussion questions, or role plays needed for training sessions. Participants use the handbook during training sessions and afterwards for review.
