Module 3A: Engagement Techniques Introduction

KEY CONCEPTS AND OUTCOMES
Module 3a discusses the range of engagement techniques that can be used in SP processes. The different techniques may be more or less suitable for the different levels of participation required—from informing to consulting and collaborating—and need to be selected based on the audience as well as the purpose and stage of the SP process. The key concepts discussed are:

  • Range of techniques Participants will list potential engagement techniques, especially unconventional ones, drawing on their experience in SP processes.
  • Different techniques for different levels of engagement Participants will analyse the range of techniques listed and discuss how they differ in terms of the level of engagement possible (from simply being informed to collaborating).
  • Selection of techniques Participants will explore what needs to be considered when selecting engagement techniques. Apart from the level of engagement required, issues should also be considered that pertain to the range desired for the participation, resources available, type of audience, and specific objectives of participation.
