Training by Objectives; A Participant-Oriented Approach.
Margolis, Fredric H.
Intended for use by trainers working in community action agencies for the Office of Economic Opportunity, this manual stresses active participant involvement in the learning process. It is designed to help develop knowledge and skill in such areas as training session design, use of adult education methods, followup procedures, and the responsibilities and attributes of an effective trainer. Trainers should become able to state training objectives, then design a program in which a learning climate is established, participants agree on learning goals, activities are planned in accordance with specific objectives, and performance outcomes are adequately evaluated. Numerous methods and techniques (including rules for facilitating feedback) are outlined for increasing trainees' knowledge or information and improving personal and job skills, as well as for developing psychological insight and understanding. Suggestions on training style are also offered. The document includes 27 references, survey forms, check lists, and criteria for program evaluation. (LY)
