About the Difficult Dialogues Workshop
Are you interested in learning how dialogue can help your students connect with course content, feel a sense of belonging in the classroom, and how questions can lead to deeper student engagement?
Difficult Dialogues is an immersive workshop led by Essential Partners that will introduce faculty, staff, and PhD students to applications of facilitation and dialogue techniques as pedagogical tools in the classroom.
Learn how to craft questions that foster dialogue rather than divisiveness, how to handle disruptions when the outside world breaks into classrooms, and foster a classroom space that promotes trust, connection and curiosity across differences of core identities, values, and world views.
Eligibility & Expectations: All Rutgers-Newark teaching faculty, including tenured/tenure-track, NTT, and PTL, and PhD students are eligible to participate.
Next workshop: TBD
