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. 

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 is a good fit for faculty, civic engagement center staff, or anyone who is in a position to bring deliberative dialogue to students. The offering is facilitated by Nicole Springer, Campus Compact Director of Institutional Capacity Building. As a facilitator and trainer, Nicole has more than 20 years of experience working with community groups, faculty, students, and administrators. 

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