|Part II: Workshop councillor as policy-maker|
Time required: 30 minutes
This presentation is to provide participants with ideas and perspectives on the policy-maker role and a conceptual foundation they can use for the individual and group exercises included in this workshop.
Prepare the presentation based on information from the preceding essay on the policy-maker role. Most especially, describe the policy-making process and distinguish among goals, policies and strategies. Describe who is involved in the process of policy-making and the various approaches for carrying out a policy dialogue.
Outlined information on note cards may help you cover the information systematically and stay on schedule. Ask questions from time to time during the presentation as a check on participant comprehension and to hold their attention. Augment the presentation with visual aids including pre-printed newsprint sheets and overhead transparencies as a further aid to comprehension.
