The tutor’s guide
Using the tutor’s guide
This Tutor’s guide contains teaching material and ideas for local resources, together with suggestions on how to use these, so that you can lead the participants through this course. Parts of the Participants’ Workbook have been included in the Tutor’s Guide so that you can see it easily. The Tutor’s Guide has been written in simple, plain English. The language level is higher than that in the Participants’ Workbook, but is still quite low. In many cases, translation into a local language will be required.

Purpose
The purpose of this course is to assist people to think about tourists, why they come to this country, what they expect and what they are concerned about. It also makes participants think about some of the opportunities as well as good and bad things concerned with tourism. We hope that this package will help to keep people in their local rural communities, and enable them to maintain a better standard of living.

Adult learning
Whether or not adults have had much school, they have a great deal of knowledge and skills through their life experience. You should use this when you are teaching adult groups. Adults like to compare what they are learning with their experience. Talking about their experience and feelings is important. Sometimes they will be shy when you first ask them to join discussions or to talk about themselves. You may need to ask questions or talk about your own experiences to start a discussion. You may also find that letting people talk quietly in groups of two or three people before they talk in front of the whole group is helpful. Discussions are important for adult learning. Asking questions and looking for solutions to problems are good ways of helping adults to learn. It is more important for adults to learn by working things out for themselves than to have someone teach them. The tutor is a guide rather than a teacher. Most importantly, make every person feel that their thoughts, feelings, and experiences are important. Then, people will be more confident at taking part in group discussions and activities.
