The OCM Training of Trainers Course (TROT) -October 2009
The TROT Course was successfully conducted by experienced facilitators in Sports Management Training from 9th to the 11th October 2009. Amongst them were trainers like Mr. Aloysius Lee, Ms Moira Tan and Dr. Tan. During the three full days of training which involved discussions, group work, role play and simulations, the participants acquired the knowledge and skills of training. The following areas were the focus of the learning activities:
- Group dynamics
- Differences of Training /Teaching / Education; Androgogy /Pedagogy/ Heutagogy
- The Skills of Training & Trainers’ Characteristics
- Training Methodology & Training Technology
- The Ethos & Curriculum of Basic Sport Administrators’ Course (BSAC) ).
- The Role and Responsibilities of the Facilitators
- The Pedagogy of Training
- Evaluation in Training
- Management of the BSAC
The ten trainees experienced an interesting journey towards becoming competent trainers. New knowledge and insights were acquired, mistaken certainties and misconceptions were corrected, new skills were eagerly tried out and existing skills were enhanced. These experiences heightened their interests, strengthened their commitments and increased their confidence in being facilitators for the Olympic Solidarity Basic Sports Administrative Course.
This course has certainly given the confidence to one of the participants, Encik Andrew Gopal from the Ulu Klang Recreation Club (UKRC), to start the BSAC in Ulu Kelang for his club members and members of neighboring clubs. Andrew Gopal would be forming his training team from his fellow course mates. Those who were approached showed eagerness, interest and willingness to be part of his team. This could be indicative that the TROT course has successfully achieved the objectives of making them competent facilitators and creating a pool of facilitators from whom OCM could draw upon to conduct future courses. In fact, another participant, Encik Dan Leong from the Selangor State Sports Council, has already stated that he would conduct the BSAC early next year and that he would be calling upon his fellow course mates to form the training team.
In accordance with the vision and mission of the National Olympic Academy of OCM, another TROT course would be conducted next year so that the pool of facilitators would be expanded and more sports administration/management courses can be conducted, and in a more professional and effective way. OCM is happy to invite all who are interested to become trainers or wish to improve their skills as facilitators to apply for the course.
