Written documentation can describe the content and curriculum of training. But teaching, particularly using participatory methods, is an interactive process. With this in mind, these videos show the approach and selected activities in action. (Note that these videos are not in themselves teaching tools. Rather, they are to support teachers’ preparation and to guide their teaching.)
