Section B > Introduction

Course Content and Teaching Strategies

This section provides a brief summary of each module of the course and detailed teaching strategies which may be used to communicate key concepts. It draws heavily from the International Training Courses that have been organised at R-DMUCH, but at the same time provides various alternative strategies that may be used for different formats of the course. Each module is based on the integrated disaster risk management framework and is further divided into smaller sections that may be dealt with individually for exhaustive training programmes, and combined together for shorter courses.

Orientation of the Course

Before introducing the subject matter to participants it is important to orient them to the objectives and methodology of the course and also enable interaction between participants and resource persons.
