Overcoming Polarization Through Better Conversations
Educators and students across the world are ready for more productive dialogue and critical thinking that leads to real problem solving as we learn about the complex, critical issues of our times. Doha Debates hosts discussions on the world’s most pressing challenges to bridge differences, build consensus and identify solutions. For educators we offer a comprehensive guide to develop the skills and knowledge needed to significantly raise the quality of discourse possible in our classrooms (virtual or face to face), as well as inspire students to take action for real change. This interactive workshop will explore how systems thinking, inclusion of diverse world views and evolved communication skills really can improve learning outcomes while equipping the next generation with the competencies they need to thrive in these challenging times.
