Thinking Better Together

Home: Welcome
The Collaborative Discussion Project

How do we think better together? How does creative, culturally responsive, and critically informed discussions help us to build stronger communities? How might collaborative discussion skills help us to prepare for careers and improve workplace dynamics? How can we discuss better together to solve sticky problems?

The Collaborative Discussion Project is an on-going experiment created by dialogue and deliberation experts, practitioners, and educators to explore these questions. The project includes 3 key components:

An open access toolkit containing intentionally designed activities to teach  collaborative discussion skills

Trainings, workshops, webinars, and community of practice gatherings led by community members 

Curated certificate programs for classrooms, communities, and workplaces
