The course will strengthen the training knowledge in our partner countries and consists of two parts. This first part of the course will focus on theories of learning and applying them to practise, as well support the participants in developing skills related to the whole training cycle. From the training design and planning to personal training skills and, eventually, to evaluation and implementation of lessons learned.
The course aims to increase participants’ knowledge on adult learning theories, learning environment and other aspects of training planning, delivery, assessment, and evaluation. It also provides opportunities to test the theories in practise. Furthermore, the course aims to provide participants with knowledge and skills to plan and deliver a simulated practical training session, followed by learning discussions.
During an online session, MSB Expert Nathalie Töpperwien Blom shared good practices of gender-mainstreaming in disaster risk management, which is a key principle for an all inclusive approach to DRM that we are promoting within the programme.
After the course, the participant will be able to
•explain the principles of adult learning

•use above mentioned theories in designing their own learning events
Setting learning objectives
•explain the importance of target group analysis to the learning objectives
•explain the importance of setting learning objectives as prerequisite for providing quality learning event
•do target group analysis and set correct skills-based learning objectives
Planning and delivery of a learning event
•create a session plan considering different learners’ needs
•name and use different teaching/learning methods in practice
•analyse own and peer teaching sessions and give constructive feedback on them
•describe methods how to take gender and environmental issues into account during learning event planning and delivery
