LDR3240: Inter-Group Dialogue Among Diverse Populations (3 CR)

 

Description: This course is designed to provide foundational skills in knowledge needed to participate in and facilitate multicultural group interactions that engage difficult conversations. The course assumes that the most effective facilitators of multicultural group interactions possess a level of awareness, skill, knowledge, and passion. As an experience in inter-group dialogue, students will engage difference across their social identities, values and power disparities. Through dialogic learning, the course underscores the pivotal role that values play in the pursuit of “truth and knowledge” in higher education and their application to authentic leadership development. Emphasis is placed on interpreting leadership theory and practice in context of Social Change Theory and UNF’s six core values. Through values-driven leadership, students can make a difference on campus and in the community. This course is always taught in a live classroom setting.
