TRESA course modules are structured to answer three questions:
- What are the trainees to learn in this module and each of its parts?
Learning objectives are arranged in four categories: skills to be acquired, information to
be digested, insights to be attained, and values to be appreciated.
- What will trainees be shown in the way of teaching material or tools?
Modules include a wide variety of tools ready for use, and may mention or suggest others.
- How will the instructor support and supervise the learning process?
Modules include suggestions for speaking notes, didactical guidance, hints on sensitive
subjects, background information, etc.
TRESA course modules are designed in such a way that they can be delivered in several size
formats as necessary. The 'standard' format is the largest, including within it the widest
array of objectives, material, and support. Shorter versions of the same module may be
available for audiences of trainees with more experience in the subject of the module or
those who do not need to go too deeply into the subject.
Modules on this site fall into two categories:
- Downloadable modules are freely available for your use. We do request that you inform
us of the use they were put to, that you do acknowledge the TRESA origin of the work, and
that you do not modify the module without our express permission.
- Other modules may not be downloaded freely. They are provided, often free of charge,
by their owners, both TRESA and other organizations concerned with SALW-control training,
but their owners require control over their use.
