Students will learn the theoretical underpinnings of civil discourse to promote public dialogue on "should questions" by connecting research to social/civic policy and ethics (e.g. What should we do to increase equitable access to sustainable energy for our communities? Or, what should we do to create more ethical leaders in our local communities?) The class will teach students public engagement processes framed through a dialogic ethic that fosters relationships based on honesty, respect, reciprocity, humility, and trust. Students will examine and think together about issues important to a civil society through a public dialogue and deliberation framework. Students that complete both 2-credit courses CMN 675 and CMN 676, may use the courses together to fulfill one (1) writing intensive course requirement.
