Planning, Conducting, Evaluating Workshops. A Practitioner's Guide to Adult Education.
Davis, Larry Nolan; McCallon, Earl
The book is designed as a practical guide and reference to assist adult educators with workshops. An introductory section touches on conflicting general and adult learning theories and relates various adult learning characteristics with effective workshops. The three major sections, "Planning the Workshop", "Conducting the Workshop", and "Evaluating the Workshop", are presented as a chronological sequence of activities and procedures. Part 1 consists of eight chapters which focus on: assessing needs, specifying learning objectives, selecting resources, designing learning activities, budgeting, making arrangements, rehearsing, and packing. Worksheets pertain to problem analysis and competency models of needs assessment, general/specific learning objectives, learning resources selection, learning design, workshop budget , and arrangements. Pages of the subsection on educational methods are edged in black for quick access. Part 2 consists of five chapters on conducting workshops: setting up, setting the learning climate, agreeing on objectives, directing learning activities, and closing shop. Part 2 also contains diagrams of various seating arrangements, tips for group dynamics, and worksheets for staff observations and closing shop. The concluding section on evaluation covers feedback from participants, evaluation by objectives (worksheet), and impact evaluation. A manager's guide to staff development also is included. (EA)
