PTM Unit - 3

Unit 3: Training Methods

This unit introduces the methods used in participatory training. It outlines the principles of method selection, within a helpful framework. Drawing largely from the tenets of adult learning, a strong methodological focus is on experiential learning. However, a number of supporting methods are used along with this in line with participatory training’s three-pronged approach to learning. These additional methods are discussed, as well as their relative advantages and disadvantages. The importance of debriefing and consolidation is also addressed in the context of experiential learning methods.
Upon completion of this Unit, you will understand:

  • Participatory training methods which can be employed alongside structured experiences, and their advantages and disadvantages
  • The principles of method selection
  • The importance of debriefing and consolidation
