Tips for Dialogue in the College Classroom

Students in American Race: A Philadelphia Story, a Stavros Niarchos Foundation Paideia Program course, examined intersectional topics on race and racism through a broad, multidisciplinary lens. The course included directed readings, guest speaker presentations, such as this discussion led by Jessie Harper from the Graduate School of Education, and in-depth conversations about the city of Philadelphia.

In this interactive session we will explore together a variety of concerns that might arise when we are asked to engage in dialogue in the college classroom and then consider strategies to help us approach dialogue with greater comfort and intentionality. Each participant will have the opportunity to reflect privately on their own classroom participation style and will leave the session with individualized and actionable strategies to implement in classroom conversations this fall. There will be opportunity to meet and talk with peers in low-stakes, low-pressure ways about what makes classroom dialogue both challenging and an effective, even joyful way to connect with others.
