dialogue matters training

The emphasis of our intensive 3-day courses are to equip you with the necessary skills to design and run effective participation processes either in a research context or in live participation projects.

Within a research context, exchanging stakeholder and researcher knowledge across disciplines and interests is crucial to delivering impact and making your research relevant. Our course enables you to achieve these goals, by the end of the three days you will not only understand good practice but be able to deliver it too.

We will help you understand the principles and concepts of knowledge exchange, train you in practical facilitation skills and process design, and help you explore the benefits and challenges of involving end users.

Our training also includes advice on practical matters such as equipment needs, output management, and venue requirements.

During training courses we will provide you with the opportunity to practice skills and receive constructive feedback from the other participants and trainers.  Before leaving the course, we provide an opportunity for you to identify processes and workshops where you can practice your new skills and consolidate your learning.

Our training is informed by our practice which is rooted in consensus building and stakeholder dialogue.  However, we draw on practice and techniques from other approaches and the course includes an overview of the field of participation.
