A. Guideline for Usage of ModulePlanning Meeting before the beginning of the CourseA Planning Meeting need to be organized before the course and the following issues required to bediscussed and decided:• Goals and objectives of the Course• Planning <strong>on</strong> the Course• Roles and Resp<strong>on</strong>sibilities of trainers and• Arrangements during the sessi<strong>on</strong>s.A Check-list also needs to be framed. An idea of the check list is given below:CHECK-LISTAscertain the characteristics of the participantsPreparati<strong>on</strong> for the opening and c<strong>on</strong>cluding sessi<strong>on</strong>sC<strong>on</strong>firm the attendance of the participantsArrange for necessary funds, if requiredCollecti<strong>on</strong> of all materials and prepare them according to the requirements of the course, ifnecessaryPrepare the Name TagsCopy the schedule and Handouts for distributi<strong>on</strong>Arrange a proper venue for the coursePrepare the banner, if necessaryArrange for Chairs and Tables for the course, according to necessityHire sound systems, if necessaryOrganize the transportati<strong>on</strong> and food for the participants and trainers/facilitators, andDistributi<strong>on</strong> of resp<strong>on</strong>sibilities according to the requirement.4

Opening and C<strong>on</strong>cluding Sessi<strong>on</strong>sThe Course should be commenced and closed with a simple & brief functi<strong>on</strong>. But, if you think thatthis is not necessary then you may start the course straight from the Introductory Sessi<strong>on</strong>.Venue for the Training Course• The training room should be spacious with ample lights & air.• It is better to locate the venue/training room a little away of the main road, so that thecourse activity will not be disturbed due to the sound of transports/vehicles• The size of the room need to be wide enough so that the participants could sit in a U-shape formati<strong>on</strong>. But, sitting arrangements could also be changed according to the reality& necessity.• There should be proper space to accommodate VIPP (Visualizati<strong>on</strong> In ParticipatoryProgram) board/ White board/ Black board, according to the necessity of the course.• There should be enough space <strong>on</strong> the wall for visualizati<strong>on</strong> if there are no such boards.• Proper space is required for the group work by the participants, and• It has to be ascertained that there are drinking water and toilet/wash room facilities in andaround the training room.Two formati<strong>on</strong>s of sitting arrangements for the participants are given below:Registrati<strong>on</strong> of the Participants’The Participants need to be registered right <strong>on</strong> the first day of the training. A registrati<strong>on</strong> formshould be prepared before hand for this purpose. Participants could be given name tags after theregistrati<strong>on</strong>, if possible and if required.5

Required quality and skills of the Trainer/FacilitatorMust have clear c<strong>on</strong>cepti<strong>on</strong> <strong>on</strong> the subject, but s/he should not show the attitude that s/heknows everything.Ability to create easy & friendly envir<strong>on</strong>ment.Ability to attend the questi<strong>on</strong>s, comments and opini<strong>on</strong>s of the participants’.Need to have the skill to ask proper questi<strong>on</strong>s and explain the issues.Patience.Ability to show respect/h<strong>on</strong>or to the participants’.Must have human qualities.Able to ensure participati<strong>on</strong> of all.Ability to apply all the methods and processes of the training course, andAble to think that I am also a trainee.Methods of C<strong>on</strong>ducti<strong>on</strong> the Sessi<strong>on</strong>sThe training sessi<strong>on</strong>s need to be c<strong>on</strong>ducted in a way that all the trainees can participate in all thediscussi<strong>on</strong>s through mutual communicati<strong>on</strong> am<strong>on</strong>gst themselves. The training would be c<strong>on</strong>ductedin participatory method so that the participants’ may apply their experience in order to make thecourse effective, successful & fruitful.Strategy of dividing the Participants’ in to GroupsThere are many methods to divide the participants in to small groups. Some examples are givenbelow, but they are not limited to and the trainers/facilitators’ may use other methods as well byusing their creative thinking:• Participants’ could be asked to call their numbers like 1-4, if you want to divide them in fourgroups. All 1’s would be in <strong>on</strong>e group and like-wise the other numbers will also be dividedin to separate groups according to the numbers they have called.• Another method could be: write the names of the rivers, flowers, fruits and birds <strong>on</strong> cardsaccording to the number of participants’ and distribute the cards through a lottery and <strong>on</strong>random basis. Then you will get 4 groups of people according to names written <strong>on</strong> thecard e.g. group of birds, rivers, flowers & fruits.6

Materials to be used during the TrainingThe module plan c<strong>on</strong>sists of name of the materials to be used sessi<strong>on</strong> by sessi<strong>on</strong> e.g. Markers,Boards and Cards. Other or substitute materials could also be used if the above menti<strong>on</strong>edmaterials are not available. For example: walls could be used in place of a board, coloredpaper/poster/papers could be used in place of VIPP Cards and Sign Pen could be used in place ofmarkers.Trainer/Facilitator may also wish to prepare the materials according to their needs and realities.Some suggesti<strong>on</strong>s to c<strong>on</strong>duct the Sessi<strong>on</strong>sWelcome the participants’ and exchange greetings with them.Present the topics in an easy, nice manner and with sp<strong>on</strong>taneity.C<strong>on</strong>duct the sessi<strong>on</strong>s with self-c<strong>on</strong>fidence.Assist the participants’ to get out of their shyness.Ensure participati<strong>on</strong> of all in the activities of the Course.Provide assistance in group works.Relate the previous sessi<strong>on</strong> with the current sessi<strong>on</strong>.Extend importance <strong>on</strong> the experience and values of the participants’ <strong>on</strong> the topic, andSummarize every sessi<strong>on</strong> at the end.7

Annex-6.1Formulati<strong>on</strong> of Course ObjectivesCourseGoalObjectives(KAS based)Specific Objectives(Sessi<strong>on</strong> wise)Sessi<strong>on</strong> Objectives must be S M A R TS - SpecificM - MeasurableA - Achievable/AttainableR - RealisticT - Time bound33

Goal:Statements that describe overall attainments of a course in general terms.Objective:Descripti<strong>on</strong> of segmented outputs of in terms of knowledge, attitude, skill against sessi<strong>on</strong>s.Specific Objectives:Expressi<strong>on</strong>s <strong>on</strong> learning achievements prefixed with behavioral/ observable acti<strong>on</strong> verbs.Vague VerbsKnowRealizeUnderstand FosterAppreciateHaveComprehendBe AwareFeelBelieveDoTellWriteDescribeListNarrateRunExplainActi<strong>on</strong>s VerbsDem<strong>on</strong>strateShowAnswerChooseOrganizeC<strong>on</strong>ductDrawDesign34

Annex-6.2SpecificSpecific means that the objective should state exactly what visible activity can the trainee performas a result of training. This suggests the use of acti<strong>on</strong> verbs in the statement of objective such as:to list, to draw, to assemble, to explain, to write, to select, to measure, and the like.MeasurableThe result of training must be measurable in terms of what the trainees could perform oraccomplish as a result of training. It can be measured using numbers, such as how many correctresp<strong>on</strong>ses were received when they were tested. This is <strong>on</strong>e of the trickiest parts, because thereare certain behaviors that are difficult to come up with standards. Criteri<strong>on</strong> or the minimum level ofcorrect resp<strong>on</strong>ses to a test may be specified in the statement.AttainableThe tasks or activities that sum up the desired behavior after training should be those that thetrainees can actually perform because they are within human capability and field of experience oftarget trainees.RealisticRealistic means that the statement of objective takes into c<strong>on</strong>siderati<strong>on</strong> the realities existing in theorganizati<strong>on</strong>. It takes in c<strong>on</strong>siderati<strong>on</strong> the present level of learning of the participants and the levelby which learning can be increased given their own c<strong>on</strong>diti<strong>on</strong> and the amount of training resourcesavailable (or can be made available) for the program.Time-boundThe statement must set how much time is available in learning a particular objective, or how so<strong>on</strong>can we satisfactorily observe and measure the behavior learned.35

Detailed HandoutMethods to be applied during the CourseBrain StormingOpen method of bringing out the thoughts of the participants’ is the objective of this method, whenthe participants’ speaks up about their views/opini<strong>on</strong>s <strong>on</strong> a specific issue or topic for 5-15 minutes.The facilitator or the trainer would note down their opini<strong>on</strong>s <strong>on</strong> a flip sheet or a board. Finally s/hemay summarize the opini<strong>on</strong>s of the participants’.Card collecti<strong>on</strong> & ClusteringParticipants’ are asked to write their ideas <strong>on</strong> a specific issue or topic <strong>on</strong> VIPP Cards and the cardsare read by the trainer/facilitator and s/he clusters them <strong>on</strong> a VIPP Board or a Board. The clusterscould also be given some title with separate meanings and identity.Small Group Discussi<strong>on</strong>Participants’ are divided in number of small groups and they discuss <strong>on</strong> certain topics and thatdiscussi<strong>on</strong> is named as Small Group Discussi<strong>on</strong>. In this sessi<strong>on</strong> the participants’ writes theirviews/opini<strong>on</strong>s <strong>on</strong> flip sheets/papers in group and present them before the sessi<strong>on</strong>.Role PlayRole Play is method where then participants’ play a role <strong>on</strong> a topic or an event and they learn <strong>on</strong>the topic after analyzing their performance/logics during the role play. In this case the participants’play their role <strong>on</strong> the issue formally. A questi<strong>on</strong>-answer sessi<strong>on</strong> is held after the role play, whichanalyzes the validity/logic of their issues or topic.Questi<strong>on</strong>-AnswerThe trainer/facilitator asks questi<strong>on</strong>s to the participants’ <strong>on</strong> a specific subject/topic/issue andcollects the answers. Some time the participants’ in groups also asks questi<strong>on</strong>s to the othergroups and in this case the trainer/facilitator’s role would be to note/record the answers and toobserve whether the questi<strong>on</strong>s and answers are c<strong>on</strong>structive, exerts learning, and also related tothe subject/topic.Case StudyA Case Study is an oral or written account of a realistic situati<strong>on</strong>, including sufficient detail to makeit possible for the participants to analyze the problems involved and to determine possiblesoluti<strong>on</strong>s. Case Studies should, as much as possible, replicate the real word, both in the nature ofthe c<strong>on</strong>tent and in the method in which they are presented and completed. While work <strong>on</strong> thecases may be d<strong>on</strong>e either individually or in groups, this method should always c<strong>on</strong>clude with adiscussi<strong>on</strong> of the outcomes.6

LectureA prepared, oral presentati<strong>on</strong> delivered by a resource pers<strong>on</strong> to a group of participants is called aLecture. Since it is a <strong>on</strong>e-way presentati<strong>on</strong> in which the participants are essentially passive, itshould be enhanced with visual aids and be coupled with a more active strategy (e.g., discussi<strong>on</strong>or exercise). A lecture can be delivered to any size group and can be of any durati<strong>on</strong>; however,briefer lectures (15-30 minutes) are the most effective. Senior managers and participants with wideexperience usually do not like lectures.Buzz GroupGroup size 3 participants (Participants will be in their own seats). Discuss am<strong>on</strong>g themselves andwrite a card(s) trainers will take feedback from each buzz group and write them <strong>on</strong> white/chalkBoard. Them summarize.Hum GroupEach group c<strong>on</strong>sists of 2 participants seated in their own seats. They discuss in pairs to write <strong>on</strong>efactor, which influences job performance. Facilitator will take feedback from each hum group andwrite them <strong>on</strong> white/chalk board. Then summarize by showing the relati<strong>on</strong>ship of training andeducati<strong>on</strong> <strong>on</strong> learning.Dem<strong>on</strong>strati<strong>on</strong>A technique that shows how something works or gets d<strong>on</strong>e is called a dem<strong>on</strong>strati<strong>on</strong>. It is intendedto illustrate or clarify an idea, process, or relati<strong>on</strong>ship. The participant’s role is <strong>on</strong>e of observing,rather than directly participating. Often, this strategy is coupled with participant practicing andreceiving feedback <strong>on</strong> performance. This is effective for technical training.Simulati<strong>on</strong>s and GamesThe purpose of simulati<strong>on</strong> is to animate participants; to motivate them for the next sessi<strong>on</strong>; toreach a higher level of c<strong>on</strong>centrati<strong>on</strong> for the next activity or for changing an exercise from a purelyintellectual activity to <strong>on</strong>e where more senses become involved. Mutual presentati<strong>on</strong>s of fellowparticipants can also have a simulati<strong>on</strong> characteristic.Simulati<strong>on</strong> must be well prepared, instructi<strong>on</strong>s given clearly and quickly executive. A lot of adultgames can be adopted as icebreakers. Their use depends entirely <strong>on</strong> the kind of group, the settingand the mood of the group.7

Course Evaluati<strong>on</strong> by dot matrixAt the end of the course, participants were taken through a participatory and transparent courseevaluati<strong>on</strong> process. A course evaluati<strong>on</strong> format was introduced with 10 rows and 4 columnsrepresenting evaluati<strong>on</strong> criteria and performance grades respectively. Participants recorded theirgrades against each criteri<strong>on</strong> individually and secretly <strong>on</strong> a card without putting their names <strong>on</strong>.The unanimous card were collected, shuffled and distributed randomly to the participants, <strong>on</strong>eeach. Then they were supplied 10 dots each and advised to put the dots <strong>on</strong> the rows and columnsfollowing the card <strong>on</strong>e has got.
