Who Is College for? Moderator Guide
National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good (NJ1)
This guide provides moderators with a sense of what deliberation means, their roles, the dialogue format, and principles and skills they need to keep in mind as they interact with the participants. The purpose of a deliberative dialogue is to bring community members together to discuss a relevant and important issue. The question addressed in this dialogue is "Who should have access to education after high school?" or "Who is College For?" It is hoped that participants will have a more informed understanding of the complexity of this issue and discover the value of deliberation as a tool for making decisions. [For the companion report, "Who Is College for? A Community Discussion Guide," see ED515229.]
