15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work Design considerations (2b): Types of learning activities Considerations, whatever training methods are adopted: Participants capacity to remain focused is generally short and therefore it is essential to propose a variety of ways of learning to keep their attention Participants like to participate even if they may be intimidated at the outset Participants often do not know or understand technical expressions and words about maternity protection: it is important to explain topics clearly and simply throughout the training programme repetition reinforces training content all ideas are valid; there should be no judging either by the facilitator or by the participants It is important to involve participants in the teaching process for greater retention Some styles of teaching are more useful than others depending on the desired outcome, and so it is important to adapt to the desired outcome carefully MATERNITY PROTECTION RESOURCE PACKAGE.

6 Mod. 15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work Design considerations (3a): Strengths and weaknesses of learning activities We saw in slide 5 seven different types of learning activities, with different strengths and weaknesses A lecture presents a large amount of information to many participants, but it is not interactive and promotes only the opinion of the lecturer Demonstrations and field visits allow for participants to personally observe a situation Case studies are simple to prepare and practical but limited in their scope and, if invented, can be too idealistic MATERNITY PROTECTION RESOURCE PACKAGE.

7 Mod. 15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work Design considerations (3b): Strengths and weaknesses of learning activities Visual Aids in Participatory Processes (VIPP) allows participants to interact, create content and voice an opinion. However it can be difficult to implement and manage effectively and requires experienced trainers Role playing allows a high level of participation and a complex exploration of social interactions. However, it requires skilled participants who need to play their roles correctly Facilitation encourages participants to develop their own solutions to given problems through common discussion. For such a discussion to be productive, it requires skilled moderators Open space technology leaves it to the participants to create their own content, their own discussions and their own conclusions. It can be very productive but needs follow-up for proper implementation

FROM ASPIRATION TO REALITY FOR ALL Part 3: TAKING ACTION ON MATERNITY PROTECTION AT WORK 8 Mod. 15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work Design considerations (4): Planning for action and wrapping up Once conclusions are reached, it is important to draft a plan of action The action points should: Be realistic Be affordable in terms of financial and human resources Not be too distant in time Establish clear deadlines Establish responsibilities for following up each of the action points At the end of a training activity it is important to examine once

again the original objectives of the session and to see if these have or have not been attained MATERNITY PROTECTION RESOURCE PACKAGE. FROM ASPIRATION TO REALITY FOR ALL Part 3: TAKING ACTION ON MATERNITY PROTECTION AT WORK 9 Mod. 15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work Validation and evaluation Validation refers to monitoring learners progress and the quality of training from the learners perspectives. Simple approaches are: Self-assessing instruments on one's knowledge of an issue Assessing the overall quality of the event if it met expectations Evaluation refers to the transfer of learning and the outcome of the training which can be assessed after

participants have had an opportunity to return to their work and implement their learning and action plans MATERNITY PROTECTION RESOURCE PACKAGE. FROM ASPIRATION TO REALITY FOR ALL Part 3: TAKING ACTION ON MATERNITY PROTECTION AT WORK 10 Mod. 15 Capacity development and training on Maternity Protection at work The logistics and constraints Organizing a training activity requires careful planning, from objectives to target groups of participants, and the amount of time, money and other resources involved.

space. Each of these has advantages and disadvantages and needs to be selected according to training objectives, constraints and the characteristics of the audience Monitoring learners progress and the quality of training from the learners perspectives is important and a number of approaches and tools are available for doing so Evaluation refers to the transfer of learning and the outcome of the training which can be assessed after participants have had an opportunity to return to their work and implement their learning and action plans Organizing a training activity requires careful planning, including the objectives, the target groups of participants, the amount of time, money, expertise and other resources involved.
