From the Field: Tested Participatory Activities for Trainers.
Crone, Catherine D., Comp.; Hunter, Carman St. John, Comp.
This resource manual provides learning activities for trainers who are trying to help others work effectively with adult learners. The activities emphasize mutual learning rather than teaching. These activities are grouped under five major categories: Becoming a Learning Group, Discovering Needs, Choosing and Using Methods and Materials, Evaluating Impact and Results, and Planning and Field-Testing Participatory Learning Activities. These activities can be used to explore participants' expectations, to increase cooperation and trust, to help the participants define needs and needs assessment, to encourage adults to take an active part in their own learning by adapting techniques and materials to their own purposes, to assess learning activities in terms of how well they fulfill learners' objectives, and to plan practice sessions to give feedback to trainees. The activities have all been used in field situations by World Education trainers or consultants. At the beginning of each exercise the particular occasion and the reason for use of the specific activity are described. (Author/SS)
