Thank you to those who attended either of the two-day
Difficult Dialogues workshops this past year. Your participation greatly
enriched IUP’s effort to create a climate in which students, staff, faculty, and
administrators can respectfully engage on the tough topics of our times and
honor each other’s’ varied backgrounds, identities, and perspectives. It also
qualified you to attend the culminating workshop on Difficult Dialogues in May.
A train-the-trainer opportunity, presented by Libby Roderick, will be held the week of May 20–24, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the HUB Ohio Room. Attendance for all five days is optimal; however, participants are asked to attend at least three of the five days. Lunch will be provided each day, and there is no fee to attend. Registration is required and may be done by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In this workshop, designed to
equip you to share your knowledge with other members of the IUP community, you
The workshop is based upon
the publication Start Talking: A Handbook
for Engaging Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education, a field manual for educators
who want to strengthen their teaching and engage more effectively in
conversations about the most important issues of our time. This resource is now
available in the IUP Libraries.
