Many of our sessions will use Collaborative Communication. Collaborative Communication (CC) is a form of dialogue that enables discursive metacognition and deepened understanding of others. Through CC, individuals dialogically synthesize new connections and move learning away from a single facilitator (teacher) and towards the wisdom of the group. The seven aspects of CC are: Climate Building, Questioning, Listening, Thinking, Focusing, Acting, and Facilitating. At the Shepard Symposium, we will utilize CC to assist us in processing and making meaning from presentations. Topics for these presentations range from disability and micro-aggressions to healing of communities from campus graduate students to global communities.
