A lively, step-by-step approach to training the trainers of adults. Using numerous examples from a variety of settings, author Jane Vella compels instructors to critically examine their old teaching model and discover a new experience in education.
"Jane Vella extAnds her previous work to bring us the sounds, smells, laughter, and images of 'train-the-trainer' workshops in popular education. Through living examples of workshops on health, literacy, and exconomic development in Chile, Haiti, Arkansas, and New England, we see how theory is translated into practice. Kudos for this hands-on application of popular education." (Nina B. Wallerstein, associate professor, Department of Family Community Medicine, University of New Mexico)
