Participation Training for Adult Education.
Bergevin, Paul; McKinley, John
Participation Training for Adult Education serves as a manual, guide, and resource for leaders and participants interested in establishing a program of adult learning called group-participation training. Goals emphasize participants learning about themselves as learners, how they relate to and can help others, and exploring the dynamics of a learning situation and how it can be made more effective. Based on successful experience, the information is arranged in chapters, covering the following topics: (1) Participation Training: Preliminary Questions and Organization, discussing types of meetings, resources involved, and purpose of program; (2) Roles of Participants, describing the functions of discussion leaders, co-leader and/or recorder, group participant, observer, resource person, and trainer; (3) Elements of Structure: Topic, Goals and Outline, dealing with the dynamics of discussion; (4) Conducting the Training Sessions, providing a detailed guide for the trainer in establishing effective conditions for participation; and (5) Some Common Problems in Training Sessions, suggesting problem solving techniques for trainer and participants. A schedule of events for a weekend training program with detailed descriptions of each session, a checklist for conducting critiques, and a glossary of terms are appended. (LH)
