Come learn how to use deliberative dialogue skills — which use brain science to put people at ease during difficult conversations — and then put those skills to use during a statewide conversation about combating misinformation.
The Center for Public Deliberation at Colorado State University is offering a training opportunity for newsroom staff across Colorado in partnership with the Colorado News Collaborative and the Institute for Science and Policy at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science to learn how to facilitate conversations using dialogue and deliberation skills to better engage with diverse cultural and racial communities.
The training is free for COLab partners and is offered virtually in two parts:
Session One: May 18, 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Session Two: May 25, 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
Trainees will learn ways that build trust and focus on strengths as well as vulnerabilities, on solutions and not just challenges and will have the opportunity to apply the training as part of the Navigating Misinformation in Our Communities event happening on June 14 and 28, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., in person at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
Participants will take these skills with them to use for future reporting and to engage their communities in other conversations.
