Webinar: Building Democratic Skills Through Deliberative Dialogue, Jan 30
In the face of ever-increasing polarization and divisiveness, there is a great need and desire for an effective, accessible, and inclusive tool for diverse people to engage across difference in pursuit of common ground for action on major social issues. A Deliberative Dialogue Forum brings people together in a small gathering to deliberate about challenging public issues. The process is guided by a neutral moderator and a discussion guide that presents multiple approaches to addressing the problem. Deliberative Dialogue provides an effective framework for mutual understanding and a common purpose that allows people to discuss difficult issues, weigh options, and ultimately take action.
This workshop will provide an overview of the National Issues Forum deliberative dialogue model and allow participants to engage in a brief practice Forum. Since 2013, NC Campus Compact as trained over 550 faculty, staff, students, and community members from 71 colleges and universities, representing 12 states, to moderate deliberative dialogues.
Date and Time: January 30, 2020, 3 PM
