Lisa Strahley, director of the Civic Engagement Center and chair of Early Childhood & Teacher Education at SUNY Broome Community College, shares why she thinks introducing teachers and students to deliberative decision making is so important. 

“Infusing deliberative practices into the curriculum promotes student engagement and civic learning. Using Public Deliberation as an instructional method elevates high order thinking skills as well as collaborative decision making. The Kettering Foundation has supported the design of online forums, making deliberation possible through any academic delivery model.”
