"It's Your Move!"
Global Change Seminar

Sequence of Seminar Activities

          Seminar activities are presented in a specific Curriculum sequence which is given in the format of a Table of Contents below. Each item in the Table of Contents is a link to an element of the Curriculum. We suggest you keep this Curriculum page open whenever you are working on the Seminar. When you click on a link from the Curriculum, a new window will open in front of the Table of Contents. When you are finished with that new page, close the window (Ctrl-W in Windows) to return to the Curriculum, and from it select the next item to read. [Note that you will need to enable Popups for this website to work properly in your browser.]

       There are 8 Segments in the Seminar. Each Segment begins with an Introduction. In the first five Segments, the Introduction is followed by some exercises and reading material. Next, all Segments include a Meeting Preparation section giving homework-type activities to be done prior to that Segment's Group Meeting. An Agenda is provided to guide a Group Meeting at the end of each Segment. Following each Group Meeting, an online Feedback Form should be completed to provide the facilitators with information that will be used to improve the Seminar.

         The Seminar is self-guided, and participants do the components at a pace as agreed to by their Group. We estimate the individual sections of each Segment will take between a ½ hour and 2 hours to finish. We offer an agenda for one meeting at the end of each Segment - however, a group may choose to sandwich in an extra meeting for some Segments where the content is of particular interest or more time is needed for discussion. We recommend that groups set a goal of completing a Segment every 1-2 weeks. At this pace, the Seminar will take 2-4 months to complete. There is an intentional flow between the Segments that will be lost if it is interrupted or too much time elapses between the Segments.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use the web browser Firefox, only one page of each article/page in the seminar curriculum will print. Our webmaster has been unable to find a fix for this common bug in an otherwise outstanding web browser. So... To print, you will need to use Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, etc.

          Bookmark this page so that you can hop around and take a peek at what's coming, or where you've been.   We suggest you print this page and put it in the front of a three-ring Binder for your Seminar materials. You might want to date and cross off each element after you have completed it. Note that there is also a Site Map to assist you in finding your way around the Seminar.

          Each of the items listed in the Curriculum for each Segment of the Seminar is on a separate Internet web-page. Read each page as you come to it, and possibly read it again before you begin the Meeting Preparation activities - which may refer to the Segment's reading articles. When you finish the Meeting Preparation activities, print out the Meeting Agenda and review it in preparation for the Group Meeting.        

          After reviewing the Curriculum Table of Contents below, go to the Seminar Journal page.
