Once you’ve completed IAP2 Planning for Effective Public Participation, you are ready to add 50+ practical tools and methodologies to your public participation toolkit. Working experientially with seasoned IAP2 trainers and your peers, you’ll now learn powerful techniques you can put to immediate use in your next project.
This module breaks down specific methods including World Café, Interviews, Revolving Conversations, Deliberation, and Advisory Groups. You’ll leave armed with a wealth of reference material, IAP2 tipsheets, and the ability to select appropriate procedures for each new project. You’ll also learn how to establish and maintain effective communication during the process.
This is part two of Foundations two modules. The Planning Module is a prerequisite to Techniques.
