Live “Deliberative Discussion” (topic to be selected) FridayLive! Dec 14 2pmET

Registration

  • Introduce, explore, critique, adapt, demo: “Deliberative Discussion”
    Begin Oct 19, continue Oct 26. Include live demo(s).
    Consider issues challenging many colleges & universities (e.g., affirmative action admission practices/policies; engaging students re: mid-term elections Nov. 6, …)

    Deliberative Discussion is a “...shared inquiry that asks participants to talk through and weigh the costs and consequences of a variety of options of solutions to a public problem. At the heart of deliberation is the group's willingness to work through the conflicts, to accept the consequences of their choices, and to establish grounds for action.
    - excerpt from “Deliberative discussion as an innovative teaching strategy,” Goodin HJ, Stein D., J Nurs Educ. 2008 Jun;47(6):272-4.

1. Audio participation?

1a. Optional: Why?

2. Audio AND video participation?

2a. Optional: Why?

3. Neither audio nor video participation!?

3a. Optional: Why?


We'll choose one of these topics in advance (NIFI guides available: https://www.nifi.org/en/nifi-materials)

  • How Can We Create Engaged Communities In A Time Of Rapid Change?
  • Divided We Fail: Why It’s Time For A Broader, More Inclusive Conversation On The Future Of Higher Education
  • Climate Change: "How Should We Meet the Challenges of a Warming Planet?"
