The Campus Conversations event, What About Online? Difficult Dialogues in Online Environments, scheduled for March 17, 2020, has been cancelled.
Both the webcast and in-person options are cancelled. Considerations are being made to reschedule the session in the fall and/or create online modules to deliver content. If the event is rescheduled, more information will be communicated via this webpage and via email to those who have registered for prior Campus Conversations events.
What About Online? Difficult Dialogues in Online Environments presented by UNO faculty members Jodi Benenson (Public Administration), Ramazan Kilinc (Political Science), Ferial Pearson (Teacher Education) and Patrick McNamara (International Studies)
In the online environment, facilitating some dialogues can be difficult in the absence of facial expressions, tone of voice and body language; which helps us understand and make sense of social situations. In this session, we will focus on techniques for leading and facilitating difficult dialogues in an online environment.
