Short-Term Community Education/Training for Communities/Regions Anticipating Energy Development-Related Impact.
It is the intent of this paper to demonstrate the role of a short-term (approximiately 4-14 hours), populace-based education/training approach in the preparation of rural communities and/or regions anticipating energy development-related impact. The approach is presented in comparison with other models and is defined and outlined through the provision of an education/training model for impact communities/regions. A major aspect of the package is the simulation game, "Pasture," which is presented in skeletal form. While this approach of focusing on the populace-at-large represents a departure from more traditional, professional-based, education/training mechanisms, it does so in both a complimentary and contemporary manner. The paper provides a design of preparation which extends the knowledge and skill bases of the professional to the citizenry--an extension commensurate with the times. (Author/BRR)
