The Deliberative Citizenship Initiative will be participating in the Verna Miller Case Research and Creative Works Symposium on Friday, April 30th from 9 am to 10 am, as part of the Community-Based Learning Virtual Presentations. The symposium is an annual celebration of student research, community projects and creative work through virtual poster sessions, digital media, art and performance at Davidson College.
The first part of the DCI’s virtual session (9 to 9:15 am) will introduce the work of the DCI, including its innovative Deliberation Guides, D Teams, and Deliberative Forums. For the second part (9:15 to 9:30 am) of the hour, Professor Steve Kaliski from the Theatre Department will share a video demo of different facilitation styles practiced in the DCI, along with some helpful tools for anyone tasked with leading challenging group conversations. In the third part (9:30 to 9:45 am), DCI Student Co-Convener Kyle Broxton will present the DCI’s preliminary research on the nature and dynamics of the deliberations that the DCI has hosted thus far. The final part (9:45 to 10 am) will be an open discussion about democracy and deliberation and the future plans of the DCI.
A zoom meeting link to join this virtual session will be made available on this Verna Miller Case schedule closer to April 30th.
