49 p. 

The booklet presents goals and activities to help practitioners of nonformal education design workshops for developing nations. Major objectives are to help nonformal educational practitioners become more sensitive to the needs of learners and to develop techniques for dealing cooperatively with people in other cultures. The document is presented in ten chapters. Chapter I stresses that collaboration between staff and students is the most effective means of teaching in a nonformal situation. Chapter II identifies key dimensions of nonformal education: it is learner-centered, flexible, loosly structured, informal, immediately useful to the learner, and relies on local resources. Chapter III describes how a nonformal workshop in Sulawesi, Indonesia was organized through cooperation between American and Indonesian staff members. Chapters IV through VII describe the materials development process, simulation game components, and criteria for selecting and developing simulation games. Chapter VIII describes kinds of facilitator intervention including prescriptive, confrontation, acceptant, and catalytic. Chapter IX traces evolution of a nonformal workshop in Bahasa, Indonesia, in which Indonesian and American staff members cooperated in materials development, objectives, and presentation. Chapter X offers a checklist for collaborators and provides summary comments on facilitator objectives and behavior. The document concludes with an appendix containing educational games. (DB)
