Session XLV Review of expectations - mid way

Guest Speaker (to be announced)

Total Time: 3 hours

Goals:

- To review trainees' expectations from Session I. Assessmeent of objectives, directions.

- To have input from host country speaker.

Overview

At this point roughly mid-way through training, trainees' expectations are reviewed to determine if they are being met. Given the scope of training, are the goals which are being met realistic? Will they be met under this program?

Exercise :

1. Review expectations

2. Presentation from host country guest speaker

Materials: Trainees' expectation list from Session I.

Exercise I Trainee Expectations

Total Time: 45 minutes

Overview

At this mid-point we review trainees' expectations. We look at whether they are realistic and whether they will be met later in the program. This is a good time for trainees to see how much progress they have made.

Procedures

Time

Activities

5 minutes

1. Trainer asks groups to form as they did the first day and look at their expectations. Ask yourselves the following questions (posted on newsprint).

   

a. How many expectations have been met?

   

b. Of those not met, are they realistic of this program?

   

c. Which ones are not yet met?

20 minutes

2. Groups assess expectations and discuss them using questions posed by trainer.

15 minutes

3. Groups report findings to entire group.

5 minutes

4. Trainer responds, points out expectations that could possibly be met in future sessions. Reminds trainees of their responsibility for their own education process.

Exercise II Guest Speaker(s)

Total Time: Open (not to exceed 3 hours)

Overview

We found that lecturers who were asked to speak, unless they were experts (and we recommended experts in some previous sessions), were unable to cover the necessary material. However, we believe there was value in having host country nationals address the trainees, and we did not want to inhibit speakers by our guidelines. Here we suggest that one or more host country people in the forestry field be asked to address the trainees in their own language.

Activities

 

1. Invited guest(s) speaks to trainers on forestry topic of their choice.
