This training module is designed to engage the learner. Adult
learning and retention improve when the learner participates
actively in the learning process. Sexually
Transmitted Diseases can be used as either an interactive
self-study program or as a participatory, group training experience.
If you are a self-study user or a first-time
group presenter, please use the Go To Self-Study Info tab at
the top right of this screen to enter the Self-Study section.
Note that while in this section, you will find a Go To Presenter
Info tab in this same location. We recommend
that group presenters work through the self-study version of
the curriculum first in order to prepare for the group training.
It is expected that completing this curriculum will take approximately
90 to 120 minutes. After completing the self-study version of
the curriculum, group presenters should return to this point
to prepare to lead a training session using the Presenter Tools.
The Presenter Tools section contains print and projection tools.
Most files are in Adobe© Acrobat© format, including:
- Color Slides for Online Presentation
- Master Slides for Overhead Projection
- PowerPoint Slideshow (Microsoft PowerPoint format)
- Presenter Notes
- Summary Fact Sheet
The Color Slides for the Online Presentation section is a PDF
document for presentation on a computer screen or projection
from a computer. If an overhead projector is your only available
projection device, print the Master Slides for Overhead Projection
and copy onto transparencies for presentation. These black and
white slides may also be used as a tabletop flip chart if no
other means of presentation is available.
A PowerPoint Slideshow containing 82 PowerPoint slides is included
for your use if PowerPoint software is available on your computer.
You are encouraged to consider the usefulness of each slide
when preparing a presentation for your audience. Slides can
be deleted, added from another source, or rearranged to highlight
Use the Presenter Notes section to print speaker's notes for
yourself, and review them before presenting. This is a carefully
researched and reviewed script designed to accompany the slides.
You are strongly encouraged to use this information to develop
your own presentation. The Presenter Notes section includes
narrative text for each slide. At times, "Notes to the
Presenter" follow the narrative. These notes contain information
about other modules or references. Refer to these notes as necessary
to expand the training material.
Print out the Objectives document for the participants and
yourself. Review the objectives for each section with the participants
before presenting the information on those sections of the module.
Use the Handouts section to print note-taking handouts for
your participants. Each page displays three slides with space
for taking notes during the presentation. These can be printed
in color or grayscale.
There is a summary fact sheet for sexually transmitted diseases.
This should be printed and distributed to audience members to
help them remember key learning points.
The Post-test section includes the post-test and an answer
key. Use the post-test after the session to evaluate what the
audience members have learned.
The Evaluation section contains an evaluation form for participants.
This will allow them to give feedback to FHI on their learning
experience. It is not designed for each individual module, but
rather for the overall use of information and the style in which
it is presented for all of the modules. Please inform the participants
that upon completing the 12 modules, including the post-tests,
they are eligible to receive a certificate of completion. In
order to receive the certificate they need to fill out the evaluation
form and send or fax it to FHI. They may use the address or
fax number provided at the end of the evaluation form.
The References section contains a list of important readings
about sexually transmitted diseases and should be printed and
distributed to any participant who wants to learn more about
these topics. The information in this presentation was drawn
from these sources.
