IAP Workshop: How to Actually Resolve Disagreements

January 30, 2018, 2-4 p.m.

Part of the MIT Can Talk series, open to the MIT-community.

When two people disagree, customarily, each attempts to convince the other that s/he is wrong. In the end, no resolution has been reached and each thinks the other confused at best and deranged at worst. This workshop will teach you a better method, Double Crux, that will enable you to collaborate, pool your information, and search for the core reasons underlying the disagreement, so that you both emerge with a greater understanding of the truth.

Take part in a series of six independent IAP workshop sessions on public speaking during the last week of IAP. The sessions are meant to be practical and interactive, and are open to all members of the MIT community. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration is encouraged but drop-ins are welcome if space is available.

* Participants of this session are encouraged to take part in the “MIT Can Talk” oratory competition on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3 at the MIT Museum (see IAP listing for more details).
