4) Offer your students opportunities to engage with the theme:
Dialogues Across Difference through assignments.
- Encourage students to have a conversation with someone who holds a different perspective on a topic related to the course, and produce a short reflection from the experience.
- Ask students to attend a session or experience of their choosing throughout the event (or participate in activism or a service-oriented event on another day), and reflect on the topic as it relates to your course.
- Ask students to report an action they plan to take to “Make Change Happen” in the next month or year.
5) Plan a class day that engages your course topic with the theme:
Dialogues Across Difference
- Incorporate a group discussion activity into your course where students share in conversations like those in the “WU in Focus” panel or other panels from the Day of Discovery, Dialogue, & Action.
6) Share the livestream or recordings in your lab, office, or classroom.
- If you and your students are unable to attend in person, engage your lab, office, or classroom using the livestream or recordings of the day. Visit https://voices.wustl.edu/discovery-dialogue-2019/ for more information.
