But often, said University of Houston-Clear Lake Assistant Professor of Political Science Se-Hyoung Yi, conversations about public issues devolve into debates or arguments, in which one side claims to know the answers to the issue and simply wants to win. “That’s why we train students in deliberative dialogue, so that they can moderate difficult topics that are key to contemporary democracy,” he said. A deliberative dialogue event is scheduled for Monday, April 19 at 4 p.m. in the Forest Room of UHCL’s Bayou Building, 2700 Bay Area Blvd., Houston. The event is open to all undergraduate students over all majors.
