SERIES: Talking Across Differences: Intergroup Dialogue and Intersectionality
Developing courses for inclusion in University Program Group IV-A - (Session 1 of 7)

Students enrolling in courses in University Program Group IV-A (Studies in discrimination) will be examining relationships among groups in our society and how individuals contribute to either maintaining the status quo or to social change, Using intergroup dialogue skills in these discussions by both faculty and students is a way to make these discussions less contentious and deeper, as well as leading to a better understanding of the issues. Participants in this workshop will: (1) review the purpose of Group IV-A and how it fits into the overall structure of the University Program; (2) review the criteria for getting a course accepted in this group; (3) discuss how integrating dialogue across differences could enhance the course; and (4) talk with other faculty members proposing courses for this group about learning objectives, making the courses more interactive and related topics.

Light refreshments provided.
