7 - Reflection
Module 7 provides you with an opportunity to reflect on all that you have learnt and done and share your experiences with others.
Decision questions: After working through this section you should be able to answer the following questions:
- What lessons have you learnt
- How will you share you experiences with others?
There are no exercises as this is a time for you to reflect on your own experiences and thoughts.
Assignment 1: iCwili experience
Watch the DVD on the iCwili experience (Still to come)
What lessons can you draw from this DVD for incremental settlement?
Assignment 2: main lessons
For each stage of the incremental settlement approach - 1) bulk, 2) basic, 3) self development, 4) upgrade, and 5) maintenance and improvement – what one or two things stand out for you per stage that you have learnt?
From all these points, what is/are the one or two most important lessons you can take away from this process?
Assignment 4: Suggests improvements to self study material
After having gone through these exercises (and assignments where appropriate), are there any improvements you think can be made to how the self study material is presented?
- Is their more information that you think needs to be provided?
- How could the exercises and assignments be improved and/or added to?
Assignment 5: share experiences
Find ways to share your new knowledge with others.
Some ideas to get you thinking:
- inform other people of this www.incrementalsettlement.org.za website.
- Call a general meeting
- phone into a community radio station and share your new insights
- Visit other communities and share your thoughts and get their ideas
- Invite other communities to come visit you
Assignment 6: start a incremental settlement group
If you are not part of a group looking for land and housing, find an existing group or start your own group. Use this incremental settlement material to help this new group find its way through the incremental settlement process.
Assignment 7: Participate in networks
If you already are part of a group, find other networks of similar organisations and discuss how you can work together to jointly achieve your common objectives.
Assignment 8: Lobby government
Alone, as a group, and as networks find every opportunity you can to lobby government and other organisations to support the incremental settlement approach. Draw their attention to this website to raise their awareness and understanding of the benefits of such an approach.
