Delivery method:


For instructional purpose, it is advised that trainers/lectures use the “Reflection” session to gather participants and select 1 or 2 multimedia videos for participants to watch and discuss. Alternatively, the Instructor can use the tea/coffee/lunch breaks to leave the videos running and use a projector to project the streaming on a large screen.
