Community Development: An Intensive Training Manual for In-Service Training. Suggested Procedures for In-Service Training.
Gessaman, Paul H.
One of three related publications on intensive inservice training for community development (CD), this document gives background information on development of the training manual which is the basis of the program and suggests procedures for using it. Aimed at agency field workers in nonmetropolitan and suburban areas who are responsible for helping groups involved in community development, the instructional manual is divided into five units: rationale for CD training, what CD is, why be involved in CD, what one needs to know about it, and extension programming in CD. This publication offers training methods applicable to each of the manual's units, encompassing presentations, participant discussion, field trips, workshops, interaction with local leaders, and discussion-reaction and reporting-analysis sessions, along with time requirements, staffing, and resource person possibilities. It also includes general procedural suggestions in such areas as who can organize and conduct the training, time allocations for activities during the four-week program, training methods (displayed on a chart with specific methods listed under each unit title), physical arrangements, general operating procedures, using the units, resource papers, and obtaining feedback from training participants (evaluation form included).
