Training Curriculum. Community Development Workers' Training Series 1.
Karani, Florida, Ed.; And Others
Developed to provide community animators or facilitators, extension workers, and trainers in east, central, and southern Africa with units and modules useful in compiling training courses to meet their own needs, this three-part guide includes, for each target group, a discussion of the group's needs/problems and roles and suggests learning objectives, content topics, training approaches or methods, and resources. Part 1 looks specifically at the orientation of community animators--the key links between development agencies and community members--and indicates methods for extension workers to establish links and develop a working relationship with the animators. Part 2 discusses training the extension worker, while part 3 provides 13 modules for the training of trainers on the following topics: (1) communications theory, models, and practice; (2) rural/urban development and communications; (3) the community approach; (4) training policy in relation to communications training for basic services; (5) communications program development, planning, and management; (6) psychology of the adult learner; (7) guidance and counselling; (8) leadership strategies; (9) training strategies; (10) instructional methods and techniques; (11) selection, utilization, maintenance, and evaluation of media and teaching aids; (12) traditional popular media; and (13) evaluation techniques.
