Conversations That Matter is new program of the Tucker Foundation that will increase the amount of meaningful reflection on campus through facilitated group reflection workshops led by Peer Reflection Facilitators (PRF).
A group on campus (a service group, a Greek house, a COSO group, an athletic team, any group) decides they would like to have a meaningful group reflective dialogue. They contact CTM and schedule a reflective workshop from a set menu of themed workshops. This workshop will be facilitated by two or three Peer Reflection Facilitators from the corps of PRFs. It is that EASY!
Workshops: Currently CTM has 2 workshops it is offering. We will be developing additional workshops soon based on current events at Dartmouth and student, faculty, and staff requests.
Want to know how this program can work with your group? Contact us at Conversations.That.Matter@dartmouth.edu
As mentioned, these reflective workshops will be co-led by Peer Reflection Facilitators. Peer Reflection Facilitators are students just like YOU! They are students who are interested in fostering more meaningful conversations on campus and want to learn how to do so! As a Peer Reflection Facilitator you will be part of an elite group of students trained to help groups reflect and deepen their understanding of themselves and each other. You will be part of a movement seeking to improve the way we engage with each other at Dartmouth. And you get a free t-shirt!
To be eligible for this year's Peer Reflection Facilitators cohort you must:
Not sure you are up to the challenge? Don't worry, we will help! Each selected Peer Reflection facilitator will participate in an initial 4 hour training and orientation retreat that will provide training on the fundamentals of group facilitation, theoretical underpinnings of reflection, facilitation of diverse groups, and the specific workshops.
Peer Reflection Facilitators should plan to facilitate about 2 reflection workshops each term. Each of these workshops will take 90 minutes for the actual workshop, and about 1 hour of preparation. This is in addition to the initial 4 hour training and orientation retreat and termly start-up/refresher meetings.
