RW 4 Social Justice Education in 3D: Activities for Dialogue, Discussion, and Discovery

Thursday, October 23,  2:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Tara Flippo, The Browne Center

This workshop uses activities to address social justice education and promote the 3 Ds: dialogue, discussion, and discovery. Participants will experience an interactive activity-based approach to develop self-awareness and agency. Focusing on methods, terminology and activities, participants will have the opportunity to increase their “toolbox” for diversity and/or social justice related content (anti-bias, inequity, discrimination, prejudice, and oppression).
Open to All; General Audience

 

RW 64 Empathy and Bullying: Evidence-based Activities to Build Caring Communities in a Nutshell

Saturday, October 25   3:15 – 4:45 p.m.

Jeff Frigon, The Browne Center

Research suggests that which most educators already know; that empathy and caring are directly linked to bullying. The more empathy we have for each other, the more likely we are to be kind to one another and not bully (or be bullied). By building healthy communities and understanding the connection between empathy, vulnerability, fear, and bullying, we can act in a preventative rather than a reactive way. This xperiential workshop will dive deeply into what the research shows to be effective and why; and do so using new and reframed classic activities as well as participant-driven discussion.
Open to All; General Audience
