Project Pericles, in collaboration with Up to Us, held a session at the 2020 Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement (CLDE) Meeting on July 24th highlighting how Periclean faculty used the Voting Modules to implement deliberative dialogue discussions about pressing civic issues in their virtual classrooms.
Panelists included Arielle del Rosario, Assistant Director of Project Pericles; Debby Walser-Kuntz, Carleton College; and Bernadette Ludwig, Wagner College. The session well attended and was filled with rich discussions about pedagogical strategies for integrating civic engagement, current events, deliberative dialogue, and voting into humanities, STEM, and social science courses.
