Work has begun on a change-over of all bound instructor manuals to our loose-leafed, three-hole punched format ready to be inserted into a binder. All instructor manuals currently being published in the bound format should be in the new format by the end of summer.
The benefit of the unbound insert format is the ability to be easily removed from the instructor binder. In the classroom this allows the instructors to take out a single page, roam the classroom and get closer to the participants. Or, when preparing for a course, the instructor can disassemble the various elements — DSP, overheads, structure of the session — and view them all at once to more quickly and conveniently understand the total effect of the session.
There is a slight increase in production cost for the new format which we hope will be offset by a reduction in the total number of pages required in the instructor’s manual now that the overhead prints are being provided four per page. While the conversion takes place the General Notes to the Instructor, the WHSC vision and mission statement as well as our statement on harassment will be updated to our current standard.
