Tips for trainers: Role play - an extract from Reflect’s Communication and Power resource pack (PLA Notes 48)
In this issue's Tips for Trainers section, we have an extract taken from the new Communication and Power resource pack, published by Reflect. Reflect is an innovative approach to adult learning and social change, which fuses the theories of Paulo Freire with the methodology of participatory rural appraisal. Reflect has evolved from three pilot projects in 1995 to the present day, where it is used in over 350 organisations in around 65 countries worldwide.
This short extract is about the use of role-play. The whys and hows are presented, with an example of role-play in practice in Peru.
