Laptop/projector, easel with notepad, markers, chosen

unit includes a PowerPoint presentation
with some room for discussion that should take approximately 15 mins. When
paired with an activity or two, the workshop should last about 45 minutes. You could also opt to do
1-2 activities instead of presenting the PowerPoint, using the speaker notes as
a source for supplementary information. If you choose to do that, it might still
be helpful to mention what STI tests are available at UNC (see slides).
Please comment on your experience with the health programming guide.
We really value your feedback and will use the information to tailor the
programming guide to your needs. Good, bad, or ugly, we want all of
your comments! Please take a few minutes to complete the survey for each module that you use. Thank you!!
Note: As with
other health topics, it will be important to establish some group agreements
before beginning the presentation, discussion and/or activities.
Here are a few
other tips to help you in facilitating this particular
- Know your attitudes, values, and biases around
human sexuality and reproductive health. Also be familiar with your audience in
terms of level of knowledge on sexual health, culture, etc. Remember that your
audience might include people of different sexual orientation and people who
are and who are not sexually active.
- It’s okay if you don’t know the answer to
someone’s question. It’s perfectly fine to tell someone that you don’t know the
answer and find it for them later or to guide them to an appropriate resource,
like Counseling and Psychological Services.
- Be flexible. Be prepared to abandon your planned
activities and simply have a conversation about sex if that’s where the
students take the dialogue.
- Keep in mind that some people might feel more
comfortable asking questions in a one-one setting rather in the group, so make
yourself available for this after the program.
