Abstract

This article describes the development of a training manual for plant health doctors to operate plant health clinics in four countries in the Pacific region by regional trainers for their national trainers. It briefly reviews the advantages of a plant health clinic approach to agricultural extension services for farmers, and the need to provide extensive training for the clinics to be effective. The manual incorporates learning approaches based on the understanding and development of pedagogical content knowledge designed to engage trainees in high level cognitive learning. The paper also outlines key aspects of the manual.
