Civic Dialogue — Morris Gathering

May 30, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Civic Dialogue — Morris Gathering

Register here.

In a context characterized by profound polarization, many of us are working to build, expand, and connect dialogue efforts as a means of fulfilling our institutions’ civic missions. Toward that end, Minnesota Campus Compact is launching the Constitution Day Dialogue Initiative this September. Whether you intend to be involved in that particular initiative or simply want to add tools to your dialogue toolbox, please join us.

This gathering will include:

  • An overview of how to be involved in the 2018 Constitution Day Dialogue Initiative and how to access a mini-grant;
  • A presentation on choosing from among the streams of dialogue and deliberation via Zoom with Tim Shaffer, editor of Deliberative Pedagogy: Teaching and Learning for Democratic Engagement;
  • A train-the-trainer session on using Danielle Allen’s Shared American Values exercise to ground civic dialogue;
  • Space wrestle with questions and tension in dialogue work; and
  • A deep-dive into Narrative4 with Dawn Duncan, Concordia College, Moorhead. 

Campus teams or individual faculty, staff, and administrators may register through May 23, 2018, at 5:00 p.m.  Lunch will be provided. Participants may participate remotely in the We the People training, via Zoom. Registration is free of charge to Minnesota Campus Compact members. Please choose the remote participant ticket option. With questions, contact Sinda Nichols at sinda {at} mncampuscompact(.)org or 612-436-2080.
