Speaking and Writing Across Differences Exhibit

Speaking and Writing Across Differences

Photo Exhibit in the Library, Writing Center Hallway


In INTD250: Speaking and Writing Across Differences, students engaged in important inner work, co-constructed a dialogic space, framed the issues that mattered to the class, and learned to interact effectively with each other -- all skills essential to participate in democratic dialogues. 
The final assignment, Photo Dialogues, resulted in this exhibit. The purpose of this assignment was to promote dialogue on important campus issues using the following themes chosen by students: escapes, borders, culture, and involvement.
