Techniques for Effective Public Participation (Module Two)

Once you have completed the required planning module, you will be ready to add 40+ practical tools and methodologies to your public participation toolkit. Working experientially with a seasoned IAP2 practitioner 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 Cafés, Interviews, Revolving Conversations, and Advisory Groups. You’ll leave armed with a wealth of reference material, IAP2 tip sheets, and the ability to select appropriate procedures for each new project. You’ll also learn how to establish and maintain effective internal and public communication during the process.

Participants who complete the Techniques course will be able to:

·         Understand the key characteristics of a wide variety of traditional and emerging techniques and technologies

·         Assess and select techniques to meet identified public participation objectives

·         Modify and combine techniques to meet various objectives and circumstances

·         Determine the skills and resources needed to use different techniques effectively.

The Techniques course is formatted similarly to the Planning course, including presentations, facilitated discussions, case studies, and small group exercises to provide an interactive learning experience.  The 155-page manual includes Tip Sheets for 25 different techniques. 

NOTE: This course requires completion of Module 1: Planning for Effective Public Participation.
