Introduction to Collaborative Discussion – Session 1 of an Online Course
September 15, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
This is the first of five sessions for ‘Introduction to Collaborative Discussion,” an online course that the Interactivity Foundation is facilitating in partnership with the Diversity Relations Council at Leisure World in Silver Spring, Maryland. In this course, registered participants meet weekly online via Zoom. The five class discussions for this course are participatory, interactive, and additive—they build on the ideas discussed and developed in prior sessions by the participants.
In this first session, participants will be introduced to “Collaborative Discussion”—the what, why, and general how—and to the Collaborative Discussion Toolkit (Module 1). Collaborative Discussion is the ability to work with others in productive and creative ways to address both large and small problems and to harness the potential of collective wisdom. It is essential in building relationships, encouraging sustained engagement, and improving possibilities. This introductory module builds the foundation for learning and practicing skills and engagement techniques that can improve the creativity and productivity of people working together in social life, the workplace, and in public life.
