Student-Led Dialogue

In some courses, dialogue isn’t just the method—it’s also the content.

Dialogue is a useful tool in many fields of study. For example, students can be taught the Essential Partners dialogue framework in a wide range of fields, including:

  • Conflict studies
  • Business management
  • Bioethics
  • Journalism
  • Sociology
  • Alternative dispute resolution

Faculty who have been teaching their students to design and facilitate dialogue might assign a dialogue project—on campus or in the larger community—to reinforce student learning and provide peer-to-peer leadership opportunities.

Want to use dialogue in your classroom? Bring Essential Partners to your campus or attend the EP summer faculty workshop in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
