The standard format of meetings will be discussed and will cover the roles adopted by the chairperson and Minutes Secretary
and the production of an agenda. Experience will be provided in 'interview techniques' with the emphasis on gathering
information. Students will have the opportunity to develop their skills in the above through defined role-playing exercises; this
theme is an integral part of the development of team work projects.
Attention will also be given to careers awareness, facilities and opportunities.
Finally, students will work in small interdisciplinary teams either to produce an environmental report for a development project or
an established facility. Students will also undertake individual presentations focusing on the management of the project.
