Trainer Resources

  • Continuing Education for Trainers
    Please continue your own sexuality education by taking advantage of video presentations, podcasts, events and trainings, and other resources.
  • Our Whole Lives (OWL) Training Roster Form (Excel)
    The UUA District Field Staff and Religious Educators who typically handle registration for trainings may use other data entry forms. Upon being contracted to train, please provide a copy of this OWL roster to the event registrar and note that it includes a tab at the bottom of the form for travel and dietary notes for their use. Ask participants to double check their information on the OWL roster before you complete the approved/non-approved settings and email the roster to
  • Facilitator Competency Assessment Rubric (PDF)
  • OWL Certificate of Approval to Facilitate (PPT)
  • OWL Facilitator Training Planning Guide
  • Promotional Flyers for OWL Programs in Congregational Settings
    These flyers can be a good way to educate facilitators at one grade level about the content in other grade levels of the curriculum.
  • Facilitator Training Evaluation Form
    • Online evaluation forms have replaced paper evaluations. Online forms save you time and photocopying expenses and afford greater anonymity.
    • An evaluation takes each person 5-10 minutes to complete.
    • Boost participation by providing onsite access to a device with Internet access on the last day of your event. You may want to ask the training event host to provide technical support.
    • Also email the link to participants so they can complete the evaluation immediately after the training, if they cannot do it onsite.
    • A paper form is included in the updated training manual but should not be used unless absolutely necessary.

Staying Connected

  • Email list: Join the OWL-Trainer list.
  • Facebook page: Request access by emailing Melanie Davis and Eric T. Morrow co-administer the page.
  • Trainer Directory (PDF). This UUA-maintained directory of active OWL trainers may be useful if a training event host asks you to recommend a co-trainer. You may also wish to check your own listing and notify if updates are necessary.
