Twenty-one sets of twenty-one ideas, activities and tips drawn from decades of international practical experience *Invaluable sourcebook on participatory training methods from the authority in the field *Essential for trainers, facilitators and teachers *Robert Chambers' author of "Whose Reality Counts?", and "Challenging the Professions" Making participation real requires workshops, training and learning that are themselves participatory. This sourcebook presents the results of the author's vast experience in the form of twenty-one sets of ideas, activities and tips, both serious and fun, for topics such as getting started, seating, forming groups, managing large numbers, analysis, feedback, evaluation and ending. From the Preface: "This is for all who try to help others learn and change... There is something here for participatory teachers and trainers; for organizers, moderators and facilitators who want their conferences and workshops to be interactive; for staff in training institutes who want to enliven their courses; for faculty and teachers in universities, colleges and schools who would like to enable students to do more of their own analysis; and for those engaged in management training who want to widen their repertoire."
