Learning together: The agricultural worker s participatory sourcebook By S Stewart, Heifer Project International & Christian Veterinary Mission, 1998. 350 pp. ISBN 1 886532 10 9 CTA number 1045. 80 credit points
Are you planning to become an agricultural extension worker or trainer or, if you are one already, would you like to refresh your knowledge or learn new tools? Learning together is a good, practical handbook for that purpose, dealing with both practice and theory. One section deals with communication and best and worst practices. Another describes the various steps to define the need, content, planning and implementation of training. Links with agriculture and related issues cover participation, gender issues, local knowledge and cultural aspects. Taking these into account will heighten the impact of your training. Finally, while practical examples, tools, role-plays can be found throughout the entire book, there is also a concluding section dedicated to making your own materials. It includes making puppets, producing posters, ways to discuss animal anatomy and games for forming and warming up groups.
