ILA Seeking Nominees for Listening Based University Student Practicum
The International Listening Association, in its 44th year, is delighted to share with the NCDD community a new program for university students taking place from March 7th-August 7th 2023!
This practicum will be cohort based with students from around the world. Thus far, students from the USA, India, Cambodia, Iran, Germany, Sweden and Hong Kong are nominated to join the cohort. The students also represent a diverse set of fields including education, peace studies, medicine, communications, business, international relations and leadership studies. All of these fields intersect in their practical application of listening, dialogue and deliberation and students will work together to learn essential skill sets in active listening. The cohort will also be charged with creating positive change proposals related to spreading knowledge and skillsets of listening across their fields and various communities. These proposals will be presented at the 2023 ILA Convention "Discovering the Impact of Listening to Every Voice" taking place from July 26-29th in Mainz, Germany and online.
Annie Rappeport, NCDD and ILA member, is facilitating the program. She hopes NCDD members who have a student they work with who share a passion for dialogue and listening will reach out to her at email@example.com to nominate the student! Nominations will be accepted through February 25th, 2023. Here is some more information about the program:
