Nonformal Education Manual. Information Collection and Exchange Publication No. M0042
Peace Corps
This manual is intended to provide both practical skills for engaging in nonformal education (NFE) and some underlying theory to help you define and develop your own approach to NFE. Based on two previously published Peace Corps resources, "Nonformal Education Manual" (ICE No. M0042) and "Nonformal Education Training Module" (ICE No. T0064), this resource represents a combination and elaboration of those manuals to bring together the best thinking from the past with the most current approaches in the field of NFE. The most obvious audiences for this manual are education Volunteers and those agriculture, business development, environment, health, youth development, and other Volunteers who are called upon to facilitate learning activities in their work, whether for in-school or out-of-school youth, colleagues or other adults. This manual includes ideas for those Volunteers who require theory and practical skills to conduct training workshops and learning activities in their communities and schools. However, NFE is more than an approach to training and session design; and as such, the reach of this manual extends far beyond those leading NFE sessions. NFE provides a powerful philosophy and an effective approach for identifying and creating learning opportunities and facilitating change in a community; therefore, it is an important tool for any Volunteer. Key resources are included. Appended are: (1) ASSET-BASED APPROACHES; (2) Assessment Tools; (3) Icebreaker/Warm-Up; (4) Ongoing Evaluation; (5) Final Evaluation; (6) Learning Methods and Learning Styles; (7) Sample Calendar of Training Events; (8) Role Plays--Two Approaches to Education; and (9) Role Plays--Two Approaches.
