About the Community Development Toolkits

The Community Development toolkits were created as part of a community-based research project undertaken by students in an undergraduate course at Memorial University, Department of Geography, instructed by Dr. Kelly Vodden (Geography 3350 – Community and Regional Planning and Development). The project was completed in partnership with the Central Region Community of Practice – Community Development. Using a ‘Community of Practice’ learning approach the project was intended to provide resources that introduce students and community development practitioners to several key community development and regional planning tools and concepts. The financial support for this project provided by the Rural Secretariat-Executive Council, as well as the support and participation of Regional Partnership Planners Linda Brett and Tanya Noble, is gratefully acknowledged.
