The Need: Social Media posts are often highly polarizing. Skills for Social Media is an online workshop designed to improve the culture of posts and conversations in social media and provide a constructive alternative to the polarized and judgmental exchanges that dominate the current online discourse. This can lead to more productive conversations and maybe joint action with people of all political leanings.
Format: A free online workshop for practicing Braver Angels communication skills on social media. The focus is on skills for people who choose to engage in conversation about politics on social media, not on the societal impact of social media.
Prerequisite: All participants must have completed the 40 minute Skills for Social Media E-course PRIOR to attending the workshop.
Goals for Participants
- You develop new skills so that you can avoid contributing to polarization in your social media use.
- You develop new skills for addressing difficult situations on social media.
- You can engage others in a constructive, depolarizing manner on social media.
