This publication is a resource for people who are involved in Australia's Framing the Future work-based learning project teams. It is a compendium that outlines project processes and provides useful hints and lessons learned by others through their experience. Six parts address the six steps in a project. Part 1, on the proposal, covers possible activities; project foci; and methods and outcomes. Part 2, on the process, addresses managing the project and understanding learning concepts. Part 3, on facilitation, focuses on facilitator roles and responsibilities, motivation, and dealing with people with different knowledge levels. Part 4, on reflection, discusses using pre-readings; suggested group ground rules, from product- to process-focused; project activities; informal reflection; using a journal; regular opportunities to reflect on progress; and the emotional dimension of change. Part 5, on evaluation, covers components of evaluation; data collection methods; evaluation questions; taking responsibility; example final summary reports; structure of the evaluation report; report-writing suggestions; examples of structure; the cover; graphs; presenting qualitative data; and page layout. Part 6, on achievements, looks at new skills and knowledge; skill and knowledge gaps identified; materials and techniques; seminars and presentations; better networks; and organizational and industry impacts. Sample project descriptions are appended. (YLB)
