Start Talking : A Handbook for Engaging Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education


Estimated delivery between June 16 and June 18.

By: Kay Landis (Author), 2015, Paperback

This book tells the story of a partnership between two universities that spent several years exploring productive ways to engage difficult dialogues in classroom and academic settings. It presents a model for a faculty development intensive, strategies for engaging controversial topics in the classroom, and reflections from thirty-five faculty and staff members who field-tested the techniques. It is intended as a conversation-starter and field manual for professors and teachers who want to strengthen their teaching and engage students more effectively in important conversations.
