Rules of Procedure (ROP) 201 is a high school seminar for novice delegates to learn about the flow of debate in Model UN committees. Understanding flow of debate is crucial, as it facilitates committee sessions and assists delegates in formulating and negotiating toward a completed resolution for an issue. By the end of the seminar, delegates will understand each step of ROP, from moderated caucuses to motions, and be able to practice their knowledge and skills through a mock debate.
One of the exciting aspects of the Seminars Program at EDUMUN 2019 is the Capstone Committee session. Prior to the conference, each delegate will be assigned the country they are representing during Capstone. Delegates are free to research the country and use the Capstone Background Guide provided to supplement their information, although they are not required to. Throughout each seminar, delegates will be learning how to participate in a Model UN committee. Through various activities and lectures, some pertaining directly to their country roles, delegates will learn how to succeed in committee. At the end of the day, delegates will take their new knowledge and put it into action during our specially designed two hour Capstone session. They will get the chance to work through most of the Model UN Rules Of Procedure (ROP), practice their debate and negotiation skills, and utilize their research and resolution skills in a comfortable learning environment. The goal for Capstone is that the delegates receive the opportunity to apply their learning and become accustomed to the flow and dynamics of committee.
