Module 3: Overview

Plan and Implement Curriculum Activities and Teaching Practices and Reflect on the learning shared in the WRC Amanzi for Food Training of Trainers (ToT) Course, the changes this has led to, and the ways in which it will be used in the future.

Module 3 is concerned with how we can share information on Rainwater Harvesting and Conservation (RWH&C) for food production in the contexts of formal education (through curriculum development or integration); extension support (through training programmes); and farmer to farmer sharing. The Module will include discussions on some of the key principles underlying effective and collaborative curriculum and training programme development. It will also look at the selection and presentation of relevant information and the use of appropriate learning support materials, including the use of the WRC Amanzi for Food website and the productive demonstration sites.

There will also be discussion of the most appropriate ways of sharing information more widely, focusing on, using the internet, radio, and print media, and how to consolidate your learning network.  The Assignments for this module will be concerned with the development of curriculum content (for agricultural training institute (ATI)/college and university lecturers); training programmes (for agricultural extension officers, NGO training personnel and other farmer support organisations such as NGOs, agribusiness & economic development agencies); and frameworks for seeking and sharing information and knowledge (for farmers).
