Outline of Activities: After an overview of the role play approach and the context for the activities, participants are allocated to one of four roles, and then each role group discusses its approach to the context. After a period of time for this within-group preparation, all groups are combined in a single discussion area to explore the different perspectives on the context. After a period of time for this whole of class discussion, all participants have the opportunity to vote on the adoption, and to reflect on the role play experience.
