In January 2017 I visited St. Petersburg College in Clearwater, FL. I was there to share with students approaches to engagement across political and cultural divides. This short video clip is from an activity where students considered how a politically conservative father might engage with his more progressive child on the topic of refugees.
Now that we have been in the pandemic for nearly a year, it strikes me how these students were sharing and talking with each other without the need for any concern about distancing. This is the way experiential-based education should be done, but things have changed of course. But I do look forward to working with students in this way soon!
