GOALS of TLT Group's Dangerous Discussions Initiative

  • Enable diverse groups in higher education to work together to develop realistic solutions to “dangerous” problems. 

  • Use technology in ways that support, rather than undermine, effective communication and collaboration.  More...

What difference does it make if you
  • Need to make money at what you're doing--or don't have to?
  • Are "working together to solve common problems"--or "exploring change"?
  • Engage mostly in "synchronous" or "asynchronous" activities?
  • Take a "campfire" as your model--
    but with very different basic assumptions about why and how folks may be drawn to the light?
  • How does community-making figure into all of this?

A course without a teacher 
is not a course.
A course with an interchangeable teacher is not a course.
