Networking: A Trainer's Manual.
Brandon, Joan M., Ed.; And Others
Intended as a resource for people interested in intiating or promoting networking and collaboration, this manual evolved from a federally funded training project of the Community Education Resource Center (CERC) at the University of Massachusetts. While the theories and activities described are designed to aid in the building of networks in the field of community education, the process is applicable to any situation in which people with common concerns wish to support one another and share information more effectively. A resource book of training activities, this volume presents a 6-step process: (1) preparation; (2) social interaction; (3) goal setting; (4) group formation; (5) action planning; and (6) evaluation. Each topic is described by an introduction and includes lecturettes as well as activities accompanied by detailed facilitator's guides. The volume also contains a series of theoretical perspectives written by leaders in the field, five case studies of networks-in-action, and an extensive bibliography. (THC)
