  • World Cafe Conference Student Facilitator Training (+)

    Thursday, March 21, 2013
    5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
    16-116, Chicago Campus

     

     

    Interested in participating in the first ever World Café Conference at Adler? We are currently looking for students to help facilitate round-table discussions around key questions in the professional world. 

    What does this mean exactly? The World Café model revolves around a central idea: communication solves problems. Given the opportunity to discuss key, powerful questions, leaders find solutions through communicating with others. The World Café model provides participants the opportunity to discuss these issues in a round-table format.

    As a student leader, you will help keep the conversation rolling, guide participants through the discussion, and summarize what has been discussed. Not sure if you can do this, but ready to try? One critical competency in leadership is dealing with ambiguity. If you step outside of your comfort zone, you will be training yourself in leadership.

     

     

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    Thursday, March 21, 2013
    9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
    Chicago Campus

     

     

    The ISE’s Social Exclusion Simulation (SES) is a role-play exercise that allows participants to see the ways in which society’s systemic and structural barriers produce social exclusion for certain groups of people. The SES simulates social exclusion processes by replicating the experiences of formerly incarcerated women attempting to re-enter society following their release from prison. Participants have reported that important goals have been powerfully met: understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access; appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice; motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change; and empathy for marginalized groups in general. If you are an Adler PsyD student and you elect to exercise your right not to participate in the simulation, you may do so without any penalty. For more information please contact your faculty advisor.

     

    To participate, you must register in advance by sending an email to ISE@adler.edu, please include the date you wish to attend.
