FACILITATORS’ NOTES: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND AIDS PREVENTION - The Southern India AIDS Action Programme, Madras
GENERAL POINTS ABOUT USING THE CASE
1. Participants should be encouraged to read the case and to prepare their own analysis before it is discussed with others in the classroom. The discussion questions should be handed out with the case to assist participants in their analysis.
2. Generally, discussion of this case has required 1 1/2 to 2 hours (assuming that participants have previously read the case and prepared their own analysis).
3. The discussion questions included with this case are intended to help participants to focus on what were considered to be particularly important issues illustrated in the case. However, the case may raise many other interesting points for participants and they should be encouraged to examine, analyse and discuss these if raised.
4. The notes that follow are intended to assist the facilitator to prepare to teach the case. They provide a synopsis of the information given in the case, together with some ideas on strategies that SIAAP might adopt in the future. These notes should not replace the facilitator's own preparation and analysis. At all times, the facilitator should encourage the participants to reach their own conclusions, based upon a thorough analysis of the information given.
5. When introducing participants to the case, the facilitator should stress that the case is intended to facilitate discussion on important organisational and programmatic issues; it is not intended to demonstrate good or bad practices, nor to evaluate the work of SIAAP.
