The Promoting Higher Education: A Guide for Discussion Workshop Supplement is a companion piece to the separate publication, Promoting Higher Education Values: A Guide for Discussion, and the free online course, Dangerous Questions: Why Academic Freedom Matters.
The Guide is intended to frame and facilitate discussion about higher education values and their implementation in a wide range of settings. Because the concepts and contexts implicated by discussion of core higher education values can be varied and complex, workshops or other group discussions are excellent ways to identify questions or disagreements and to build deeper understanding. This is especially the case when discussions are framed around concrete examples based on real life situations.
This Workshop Supplement is intended to assist organizers and facilitators of such discussions. The Supplement includes advice for facilitators presenting each of the four content units in the Guide. It also includes exercises, questions for discussion, suggested charts and diagrams to increase opportunities for discussion and understanding. If you are interested in facilitating a discussion or workshop with SAR on Promoting Higher Education Values for your campus, please contact Scholars at Risk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
