| Tools for teaching - A visual aids workshop, and instruction manual for health educators |
|Session 1. Introduction to the visual aids workshop|
1) Ask participants to assemble once again into teams.
2) Using the list of visual aids compiled in Activity 1.2, write the name of each visual aid on a separate piece of paper.
NOTE: The workshop does not have the facilities nor the equipment to produce film strips, slide presentations, or video tapes. Please limit your list to low-tech, low-cost visual aids which can be constructed from locally available materials.
3) Fold each piece of paper into quarters and place in a box, bag, or other container. Ask each team to randomly select three slips. Drawn slips will indicate the visual aids to be constructed by each team.
If you wish, allow for a five minute trading session following the random drawing to permit teams to exchange assignments as desired.
4) Ask teams to discuss amongst themselves the public health issues they will address. Ask them to refer to the list of scenarios (from Activity 1.2) and to consider each issue in terms of a potential target audience and method of presentation appropriate to their assigned visual aid. Each team should list their projects in the order in which they will be executed.
