Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it
This document has been designed to provide a framework for thinking about group-work in a structured way and making decisions at each stage in the process: Programme Development; Module Planning; Assessing and Monitoring and Supporting. The flowchart shown in Figure 1 illustrates the process and identifies key questions to answer at each stage. The guidelines then deal with each stage in more depth.
