Event Description

“Dialogue and Deliberation are innovative processes that help people come together across differences to tackle our most challenging problems” (National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation). Incorporating these processes into the curriculum of college courses gives students opportunities to develop skills to productively engage with society’s challenging problems in authentic ways.

In this workshop, course instructors will learn about deliberative pedagogies and how they can be used to teach the civic skills of investigating social issues, exploring perspectives, and gaining a deeper understanding of complex problems. Participants will start by learning about the theoretical foundations of deliberative pedagogies and then participate a Deliberative Dialogue. They will also have time to identify complex problems related to the courses they teach and planning how to incorporate Deliberative Dialogues into that learning experience. Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be trained as Deliberative Dialogue facilitators. Registration is required.

Artifact: Participants will develop a plan for incorporating Deliberative Dialogue into a course.

Eligible participants will receive a $100 stipend for successfully completing this course.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
