Based on the information in the session, a colleague and I shared insights with our staff, then we broke into small groups to “workshop” arguments we had experienced, that did not go well–we found ways where we might apply strategies to improve the arguments we had experienced.
I work at a museum and historic site that engages in similar work (public dialogue, civic education, etc.). Following your training I shared some of my notes and helpful takeaways with colleagues and continue to evangelize your program!
I am mindful of the importance of listening to understand, rather than to win. I have the chance to apply this all the time, with people who have not had the training. It takes more work, and it is worth it.
Really appreciated how well structured and organized the training was. I valued all the different ways to engage (chat, poll, small groups, etc.) and that we returned to same small groups for both breakouts. Very well done.
Thank you for providing these helpful and critical resources and trainings. I have encouraged several others to participate, and we shared the principles with others at a recent conference.
I think many Americans are looking for ways to engage others but need the very real assistance of efforts like The Better Arguments Project to start doing so more pro-actively. Thank you for your work.
