Planning for material production

The learning objectives and the teaching methods used in the programme will influence the type of materials needed.1 The programme presented in this package is largely based on participatory methods, as these are known to facilitate the learning process. The type of materials will depend on finances, and on the availability of duplicating equipment Costs will have to be calculated carefully: it is important that in countries where information materials are scarce in the community, print materials are given to students to take home, so that they can be shared with peers and family.
