Faculty Workshop August 30: Introduction to Paideia Seminar Discussion

submitted by lloydr@augsburg.edu

In today’s challenging political climate, the skills of civil, civic-minded, and evidence-based democratic deliberation are a necessity. Paideia (pie-DAY-a) is a pedagogy that encourages inquiry-based, democratic discussions around a common text. It can be used with all ages and in all subject areas. This workshop session will give participants a chance to participate in a Paideia style seminar discussion, and acquire strategies for implementing Paideia seminars in their own curriculum. Please RSVP by August 25: you will receive a short reading which will serve as our practice text via email. Contact lloydr@augsburg.edu with questions.

Facilitators: Rachel Lloyd and Anne Kaufman
