Encountering Controversial Ideas in Higher Education

October 19 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on October 19, 2020 at 5:00 pm

Students attend college for many reasons, including to learn about the world, to develop critical thinking, and to hone employable skills. In recent years, colleges and universities have struggled to determine how to include or if they can include a variety of ideas that challenge students’ understanding of charged issues in their curriculum and in the academic environment. Students, faculty and administrators naturally bring their own experience and perspectives to the classroom. The purpose of this conversation is to share experiences that create greater understanding of what helps or hinders the free exchange of diverse ideas in the higher education learning environment.

This guide was created in partnership with the Heterodox Academy.

HERE is the conversation guide. Pay particular attention to the questions in Round 2.
