Instructor development courses and workshops

Master Instructor Workshop (MIW)

Workshop Overview

Purpose: This workshop is designed to enhance the skills of experienced trainers and improve their skills as facilitators. The workshop has several purposes: to provide comprehensive instructor training information and skills practice for relatively inexperienced trainers; and to improve the skills of experienced trainers within the context of current PEER training programs.

Background: MIW is a five-day workshop of the Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response that was developed by the United States Agency for International Development through its Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance together in collaboration with the Safety Solutions Incorporated, and National Society for Earthquake Technology-Nepal.

Target Audience: Suggested class size is from 18-24 members. The target learning audience consists of new as well as experienced trainers who lead PEER courses related to MFR, CSSR and CADRE.

Course Methodology and Content: The course is delivered in five days by seven instructors using the interactive lecture method (ILM) of instruction that is objective based, performance oriented, tested, and highly participatory. The experience of the instructors is enriched by the interaction between the participants. Interactive lectures and group work sessions are used to present the course content with team activities used to assess participant learning.
