Training in Paradise: The TIP Compendium Volumes 1-VI
- Volume I: Participant-Centered Learning: The Conceptual Framework presents our participant-centered philosophy, some key concepts linked to it, as well as a chapter from Volumes II-VI describing a workshop and some insights about working in that culture.
- Volume II: Training of Trainers (TOT) includes examples from the many TOTs we have delivered and manuals we have written. It is organized into three sections: “Before, During and After the workshop.” It is our take on how to train facilitators to do participant-centered work—with focus on design, delivery, facilitation skills, adult learning styles, small group work, key methodologies, generic schedules, checklists and designs.
- Volume III: Project Planning & Monitoring focuses on ZOPP (Ziel Orientierte Projekt Planung) and Project Cycle Management—beginning in Nepal with USAID, then in Thailand with GTZ, moving to Europe with AMI, extending into South Asia, the Middle East and the U.S.A. Once we became ZOPP moderators, we expanded the methodology and incorporated it ubiquitously into our work.
- Volume IV: Humanitarian Emergency Management captures DH’s more than 40 years facilitating emergency and humanitarian management training, including in Lesotho, the national emergency planning workshop in China, the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan, and EWPM for the UN.
- Volume V: Unique Learning Interventions details experiences that do not fit into other Volumes—from “Giving birth to organizations,” to micro-enterprise development and child labor monitoring, teambuilding, proposal & report writing and Introduction to development.
- Volume VI: Life Experience Action Planning (LEAP) is a step-by step presentation of the LEAP methodology—the personal planning approach MH developed based on ZOPP project planning. Included are instructions for facilitating each LEAP Step, as well as examples for business, universities, and correctional facilities.
