    What kind of tools and techniques do you use in your P2 processes? Are you keen to learn about a deep, rich conversational process that allows for critical thinking and productive discussion that results in a decision all while bringing participants together to jointly explore the pros and cons of a variety of alternatives? This course is intended to provide you with a comprehensive, in-depth understanding of how to design and implement a deliberative forum all while complementing and building on the content introduced in the IAP2 Foundations for Public Participation course.

    Who should take this course?
    The IAP2 Foundations for Public Participation training course offers two packed days of technique exploration and provides an excellent overview of many different types of conversation techniques. However, it does not allow for a detailed, in-depth discovery of specific techniques – like the deliberative forum. This course gives you a comprehensive look into one specific technique that you can then apply or implement with increased skill and expertise. Moreover, it is designed for participants who are new to using deliberative forums and are looking to expand their knowledge and understanding of how to effectively design and implement a deliberative forum process.

    Learner Outcomes
    At the end of this online course, participants will:

    • Understand the key differences and signifiers of a deliberative process compared to other public participation techniques;
    • Consider and develop guiding principles to embed in future deliberative processes;
    • Assess your skills and knowledge to design and implement deliberative processes;
    • Explore the opportunities and challenges associated with using a deliberative forum as well as establish criteria to determine when or when not to use this P2 technique;
    • Receive a deliberative forum “how to” guide including: how to frame a topic for conversation, key steps in facilitating a face-to-face deliberative forum, and tips and tools related to question development, reporting and working with different perspectives

    Working on your own or with a small group of other participants, using real world topics and situations, you will work through the process to frame, design and prepare for a deliberative forum.

    Dates: November 9 through December 12
    In Week 1 participants complete course activities on their own with formal online support. In Week 2, a live session with all participants will take place on Tuesday, November 15, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern. Week 3 will also provide a live session on Tuesday, December 6, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern. In Week 4, like Week 1, participants complete course activities on their own with formal online support.

    LIVE SESSIONS:

    • Tuesday, November 15, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern
    • Tuesday, December 6, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Eastern

    Workshops, Surveys, Tours – Oh, My!
    This course focuses on the critical and oft-neglected professional development “zone” between process design and detailed instructions on specific techniques – that space where practitioners and decision makers decide which tools and techniques to employ. 

    Too often those decisions are based on the practitioner’s experience or comfort with a particular technique, a project lead or decision maker’s new favorite tool, fears about stakeholder influence or conflict, and so on. While there are always demands and constraints on choices, this course offers a more thoughtful and efficient approach to wisely choose tools and techniques to support stakeholder engagement, meet your project and engagement objectives, and account for key variables including schedule, budget, opportunities, and risks.

    Who should take this course?
    Practitioners and decision makers responsible for choosing tools and techniques to support stakeholder engagement in a project, or for an organization to acquire as part of longer-term engagement support.

    Learner Outcomes
    At the end of this online course, participants will:

    • Understand how tools and technique choices fit within a process design framework and context
    • Recognize how tools and techniques appropriately vary by objectives and group size
    • Understand the critical need for tools and techniques to meet stakeholder needs
    • Learn about various decision-making factors
    • Explore various ways to decide about tools and techniques while understanding their value, limitations, implementation considerations, application, and so on
    • Explore equity opportunities and risks tied to tool and technique selection
    • Recognize the role of evaluation and real-time adjustments
    • Learn ways to navigate process and decision-making challenges

    This course will be delivered in a mixed format with via two live sessions, some off-line preparation, and an open-source resource directory of materials and links.

    DATES: December 5 through December 16

    LIVE SESSIONS: Wednesday, December 7 and Wednesday, December 14, 1:00-3:00 pm US Central (Time Zone Converter)

    Three different projects.

    Three sets of engagement toolkits.

    Three ways of making P2 meaningful.

    One conclusion: that when people are involved in designing and executing public outreach, they become more invested in the success of the project. Toolkits are one way to ensure that the process becomes as valuable as the outcome.

    One of the toolkits was created for a rural mobility project, another was designed to enhance the outreach capacity of city staff; the third focused on making participation inclusive.

    In this session from the North American Conference last September in Montreal, a group of practitioners shares what they learned and how you can apply it in your own work.

    Often, public participation practitioners are expected to facilitate p2 events, but many have not had an adequate opportunity to learn how to facilitate. We don’t want to practice with real participants, after all! This course introduces basic facilitation skills and provides a safe environment to PRACTICE facilitation skills. Limited to less than 12 people, the class is small enough to allow each participant one opportunity to facilitate and feedback to help you develop your skills and increase your confidence. Trainer

    Public dialogue can often be heated. To bring about understanding or to settle differences, it is imperative to build trust and maintain civil exchanges. What is needed are effective communication patterns that demonstrate caring and control. Unless one is well-grounded in such skills, things can be said that are hurtful or counter-effective. This course will review basic listening and confronting skills and how they can move discussion forward amidst a controversial setting. We will dramatize typical scenarios and explore alternative ways to show understanding (even when not agreeing), as well as ways to speak up without escalating angry emotions. Trainer

    Over 25 years IAP2 has exemplified the best of the P2 practice by recognizing P2 projects and organizations that strive for and achieve excellence in the field. That excellence in P2 practice is built on a foundation of mastery by P2 practitioners, who embody the values, ethics, skills and attitudes that make or break the difference between a mediocre project and one that changes outcomes, lives and communities. Practitioners who meet this test of mastery are continually evaluating their practice, strengths and leadership abilities – in the room, with participants, with organizations and in their field.
    Trainer
    Stephani McCallum

    If you are an intermediate to advanced practitioner, with years of experience in a variety of settings in your field, it is time to take your practice to the next level and review your challenges and failures, and maximize and grow your strengths and abilities. The evaluation you conduct, and the plan you create in this course, will allow you to take your practice to the next level of P2 mastery.

    Building on IAP2’s Emotion, Outrage and Public Participation training course (but not a prerequisite) this highly participatory course will allow participants to uncover what’s driving emotion and outrage in P2 processes. Through exercises, discussion and multi-media presentation, working with real public outrage situations, participants will learn about AND PRACTICE highly effective, collaborative strategies to transform conflict and outrage and create an environment for constructive engagement.

    With a focus on exploring skills and tools to embrace high emotion and outrage in public settings, and to create opportunities to encourage positivity, generosity and civil discourse in high stakes conversations, participants will walk away with deeper knowledge and insight into what is happening in the public realm, and how to best work with it.

    Creating an economic development plan for an island shared by a First Nation and a non-Indigenous community demands addressing differences and embracing similarities. EcoPlan International, the Village of Alert Bay and the 'Namgis First Nation accomplished that, and received the 2016 IAP2 Canada Core Values Award for Respect for Diversity, Inclusion and Culture.

    The Saint Paul Public School District in Minnesota had to move its facilities into the 21st Century -- at least, figuratively -- and received the IAP2 USA Core Values Award for Respect for Diversity for the way it brought teachers, parents and students into the conversation.

It's a smorgasbord of ideas, tools and techniques that you can use to apply to your own work.End-of-life health care choices can be a subject a lot of us try to avoid, and it's possible to wait too long. CEAN -- the Community Engagement Advisory Network at the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority -- set out to help people deal with it in the Advance Care Planning Program. Facilitators volunteer their time to help bring together patients, family members and health-care providers to plan for The Inevitable while the patient is still able to make his or her wishes clear. CEAN received the P2 for the Public Good Award at the 2016 IAP2 Core Values Award.

    Rejuvenating a major traffic artery in San Francisco and bringing it back to its former glory was also a touchy subject around the City By The Bay, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency chose to reach out to the people involved to help come up with a plan. The Van Ness Improvement Project is still going on, and the P2 process MUNI used was the first recipient of IAP2 USA's Core Values Award for Creativity and Innovation.

    And community planning on First Nations often fails to meet the needs of the people it's supposed to serve, if the process is based in a colonial paradigm. The School of Community and Resource Planning (SCARP) at the University of British Columbia recently partnered with the Musqueam Indian Band -- traditional inhabitants of the land where UBC sits -- to develop the Indigenous Community Planning Program. This Master's degree program equips students for working with First Nations to plan their communities in ways that are truly "home-grown". The program received the IAP2 Canada 2016 Core Values Award for Indigenous Engagement.

    How do we get program communications to stand out when stakeholders are fatigued with information and overloaded with traditional planning efforts? If that's been a question on your mind as a P2 professional, you don't want to miss this webinar, which struck a chord with many of those who attended last September's IAP2 North American Conference.


    Jamie Harvie and Sam Beresky of JLA Public Involvement, will address the importance of developing customized communication tools for a variety of community audiences. They will share examples of videos, community storytelling, social media campaigns and other creative outreach strategies that have helped program communications get noticed ... and even motivate people to get involved.

    Once again, we're pleased to welcome back the presenters of one of the sessions from the 2016 IAP2 North American Conference, "Facilitation Matters".

    As traditional municipal P2 activities such as town hall meetings and public information sessions are eclipsed by increased online engagement, it becomes especially important to ensure that scarce opportunities for face-to-face dialogue with stakeholders are used exceptionally well.  Often success depends on how creatively sessions are designed and facilitated.

    Kate Bishop from the City of Guelph, Ontario, and Rebecca Sutherns of Sage Solutions will join us to share their expertise and address your questions and points in this interactive webinar.

    Do you find it a challenge to convince your organization to make P2 a priority? Despite the fact that organizations are being driven to commit to P2 by a combination of planning and legislation requirements, as well as community expectations, many organizations have not put public participation at the heart of its decision making and action.


    In this webinar -- another of the sessions from the 2016 IAP2 North American Conference in Montreal -- Anne Pattillo will present the results of new international research and in-depth case studies to unpack how practitioners and organizations opened their hearts and practice to public-centered decision-making and action. 

    You'll wind up with new tools and ideas for leading your organization into a true commitment to engage the public in its work.

    Good P2 makes for better decisions, and good P2 with a well-informed public makes for the best decisions of all. But when it comes to science and policy in environmental issues, how to you engage people well enough to keep them engaged? Mark Szabo struck a very responsive chord with attendees at the 2016 IAP2 North American Conference in Montreal when he addressed the question of understanding "squishy stuff": people rated his session very highly. Now it's your opportunity to learn from what he's learned and apply it to your own work.

    Meantime, Jacques Benard questions whether collective intelligence is really the best way to go and asks, "Are We Smarter Together?" The answers he's come up with might surprise you.

    Here is a chance to catch two session presentations from the 2016 North American Conference in Montreal, and whet your appetite for next month's IAP2 North American Conference in Denver.
