JAN 113 - Finding Our Voices/Hearing Others’: Discovering Common Ground Across Differences

Upper division
Full credit
MTuThF, 12:00 PM - 2:35 PM

This course is designed to prepare students to create components for and facilitate workshops among their peers on “difficult dialogue” topics - such as racism, sexism, classism, etc.   Students who complete this course will be equipped with practical, experiential hands-on training, and skills to challenge prejudice and discrimination, through finding their own voices, as well as listening closely to the voices of others.  We will focus on the creation and facilitation of dialogue workshops with an eye toward appreciating, valuing, and learning across differences.  The skills learned in this course will also enable us to create dialogues about a variety of issues in the contexts of our lives, both personal and professional, and to live and work successfully and civilly in a diverse world.
