What kind of resources and how to use them?
Every module part of the Socioeconomic Empowerment Toolkit is composed of sets of resources for preparation and delivery of a training. Some resources are intended only for educators, and are created in the form of written instructions on how to prepare and implement different segments of training, while some materials are intended for participants, to be used during and after the training.
WALKTHROUGH DOCUMENT is a document for educators, which describes the activity flow, from opening to completion of training, through the prism of the smallest segments of the training. In this document, educators are indicated when to introduce different segments in training sessions, and what materials they are supposed to use in that particular segment.
INSTRUCTIONS is a written document for educators on how to organize a particular task, play a game or a lead discussion. The document contains instructions on the size of the group and the method of work (individual, in pairs or groups), the way of organizing activities, the purpose of activities and what additional materials should be used in the implementation of the activity.
TUTORIALS are the manuals with theoretical content that should be presented to the participants in the training session. They are intended for educators as content that should be presented to participants, as well as for participants – as the content to be adopted. The tutorials are distributed to the participants by an assistant educator at the end of the session.
HANDOUTS are printed materials to be used by participants during a task or a play/game. Handouts are distributed to participants by an assistant educator before the start of the task/play.
PRESENTATIONS are audiovisual materials used during the delivery of tutorials, for visual illustration of the content.
