2023 Summer Workshop: July 9-14 at Bard College

Debate In the Classroom: Writing, Speaking, Teaching

Applications due January 1, 2023

The OSUN Global Debate Network and IWT CLASP invite faculty members from across the OSUN network to join us July 9-14, 2023 at Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY for a fully funded weeklong workshop on facilitating classroom debates.

In this hands-on, interactive workshop, we will think, read, and write about best practices for classroom debates as well as walk through several practical exercises that faculty can implement to integrate debate and public speaking into their classes. The institute will culminate in an exciting public debate.

During the week, teachers live in private dorm rooms on the Bard campus, eat meals together, and enjoy the beautiful setting and lively atmosphere of Annandale-on-Hudson in the summer. Workshop groups meet for fourteen sessions, beginning Sunday evening, July 9. Subsequently, groups meet three times a day between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.  IWT will be hosting a plethora of concurrent workshops in July, offering participants in the debate workshop ample opportunities to connect with faculty from across OSUN and beyond.
