Communication Skills for Dialoguing Across Difference
Now more than ever, you are going to school, working, and living in communities with people who think, look, and have beliefs different from your own. This 45-minute course will give you the skills to bridge those divides and find common ground.
In this skills-based course, we will explore practical strategies and techniques to apply in your daily life. You will learn about the difference between dialogue, discussion, and debate; micro-affirmations; and how to be an ally.
