Fox, Helen; And Others
This Peace Corps Nonformal Education (NFE) training module provides training ideas for volunteers. This module contains 10 sessions, each designed to fit into a 3-hour period: (1) What is NFE? (2) adult learning; (3) helping people identify their needs; (4) facilitation skills--part 1; (5) facilitation skills--part 2; (6) NFE materials development; (7) games in NFE; (8) planning; (9) evaluation; and (10) looking back/looking ahead. Each session contains the following sections: rationale; objectives of session; materials needed; trainer preparation/options; Peace Corps NFE manual reference; and activities--activity time, purpose, step-by-step, options, notes, "for next time," time savers, related references, and handouts. An introduction includes information on involving host country citizens in the workshop and facilitation hints, such as the following: encourage controversy, be aware of cultural sensitivity, encourage participants to take the training seriously, integrate the big talkers and encourage the silent ones, and break off lengthy discussions kindly. Tips to follow when the whole group is silent are also included. Three appendices contain more warm-ups, evaluation activities, and seven references. (NLA)
