Gippsland Second semester 2007 (Flexible)


Students will facilitate a group of interested community members or workplace colleagues in the process of collaborative engagement. Attention will be paid to the development of a public language and voice from within this group, in contributing to future directions for their community or workplace. The unit provides a framework and supervised practice requiring students to reflect on the integration between theory and practice in facilitating community engagement.


On successful completion of this unit students will: demonstrate a capacity to carry through to completion a project that requires skills in the changing roles of group facilitation, demonstrating sensitivity to the increasing independence of learners as well as diverse personalities involved in local issues and interests; and demonstrate an advanced capacity to reflect on and evaluate their own skills in collaborative learning and group facilitation through written, oral and or visual presentation of their analysis, in collaboration with group members.
