'Facilitating Online Deliberative Dialogues' - Today

Please join us for a training on the use of the deliberative dialogue method as an educational tool for building student capacity to engage in thoughtful, constructive, and critical discussions of public questions, presented by Campus Compact, today, October 1, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Faculty, community engagement professionals, and administrators are all welcome to attend. This training is free to members of the Buffalo State College community.

This training focuses on the National Issues Forums method of public deliberation and includes an overview of the theory of deliberative pedagogy and a deep dive into the method and practice of deliberative dialogue. Participants engage in a practice forum and receive strategies and tools for effective moderation with specific attention to online formats.

The training will be facilitated by Leslie Garvin, executive director of North Carolina Campus Compact, who has more than 20 years of experience working with community groups, faculty, students, and administrators. Since 2013, NC Campus Compact has trained over 550 faculty, staff, students, and community members from 71 colleges and universities to moderate deliberative dialogues. Ms. Garvin leads the efforts to find common ground for action on pressing community issues through the use of deliberative dialogue. She also facilitates the compact's faculty engagement initiatives, including the Community of Practice, Inquiry, and Learning (COPIL) and Partnerships: A Journal of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement.

Campus Compact is grateful to Up to Us for its partnership in support of student civic learning and deliberative dialogue.

Please register online.
