    Effective Communication, Mediation & Negotiation | Sydney
    Location: Level 6, 1 Elizabeth Plaza North Sydney NSW 2060

    About this Course

    What planners do most is talk and interact; it is through communicative practice that they influence action. Communicative planning requires a new concept of information and how it influences action - namely, a concept of communicative rationality, supplementing instrumental rationality. Information in communicative practice influences by becoming embedded in understandings, practices and institutions, rather than by being used as evidence.

    This course is also available via correspondence. Contact the Lifelong Learning Team for further information.
