UNIT 14: TUTOR SUMMARY NOTES
The aim of this exercise is to help participants reflect on the previous unit and outline what will be covered in today’s session. It is useful to remind people of how this group has developed and how it has worked over the duration of the Course.
EXERCISE 2: TASK AND PROCESS (45 minutes)
The aim of this exercise is to introduce the distinction between task and process in a group by using course members’ own experience.
EXERCISE 3: ROLE PLAY EXERCISE – TASK AND PROCESS (75 minutes)
This exercise gives course members a chance to be a fictional group and play out a scenario. It can be good fun, but it can also get quite heated if people really get into it! It’s important to give participants time to come out of role at the end. The observer’s role is also important and you should take sufficient time to thoroughly brief them before the role play takes place.

The aim of this exercise is to introduce participants to a framework for community engagement which can act as a useful reference point for reviewing how well your group is doing.
