Online Manual for Media Trainers
A new resource for trainers has been launched on the Institute website.
Designed to help trainers with their own continuing professional development and to give a resource to those just embarking on training in their responsibilities, the Developing Training Field Manual is available without charge to all visitors to the website.
Institute members can use their username and password to log-in and can then edit content to add further insight and ideas. Members can also propose additional topics to be included.
The Field Manual uses well known wiki software to enable collaborative development so that insights from across the media training world can be included. Instructions are provided on every page.
Topics include Continuing Professional Development, Delivering and Evaluating Training, Having an Impact, Supporting Learners, Managing, Planning and Designing Training, Curriculum Development, and Working across Cultures.
There are practical exercises for users including self-assessment tools to assess their own professional development and identify your personal learning preferences. There are also links to video training resources as well as materials available from external agencies.
The ICTI website uses Moodle learning management system software. Download the current Moodle Mobile app from the Google Play store or iPhone App Store.
