Dialogic Classroom Workshop for Higher Ed

Essential Partners

Location: Online

Designed especially for higher education instructors, this workshop will give you the tools and techniques to improve the quality of class discussions, create a more inclusive environment, foster curiosity as the driver of learning, help students feel more connected to the school community, and create a more cohesive class environment, all while improving academic performance.

Whether in the arts and humanities or STEM fields, we’ve empowered hundreds of educators to lead more open, productive discussions about difficult or divisive issues—topics like the Black Lives Matter protests, partisanship and the 2020 Election, the role of guns in American life, gender identity, and more.

The benefits of EP’s Dialogic Classroom approach have been broad and deep. Our research has found measurable outcomes, including:

  • Better retention of the course content
  • More consistent, constructive class participation
  • Greater social and emotional competency
  • The ability to hold conversations across differences
  • A stronger sense of community belonging

The building blocks to a dialogic classroom can be adapted to your course and teaching style, whether it’s a big lecture hall or a small seminar, in person or online.
