Training

ITD has departed from using an instructive training method towards training with a participatory focus. A participatory focus involves a two-way process of sharing experiences and co-constructing knowledge between the training facilitators and the trainees. Experience has taught us that such a participatory focus assists trainees to develop awareness of their practices and to apply their understanding and knowledge gained from training sessions to their own lives and contexts. This participatory focus includes the following aspects:

 

Experiential Learning

 

Practical exercises, role-plays, case studies and interviews are all examples of training processes that assist in experiential learning.

Reflexive Conversations

 

Trainees are invited to reflect on the experiential learning process. This helps to internalise the knowledge that was obtained through the experiential learning process.

Group Inter-Active Processes

Group interaction is used to facilitate generative conversations and
co-construction of knowledge that can be applied to the participants own lives and working contexts.
