The free exchange of ideas is central to democracy and to academic work.  Yet often this exchange can be fraught with misunderstanding, anxiety about how our ideas or positions will be received, and unnecessary conflict.  This workshop will teach participants central concepts of rhetoric and argumentation that can aid in generating useful debate that fosters open dialogue towards understanding and problem solving.  Open to the entire MIT community, but space is limited to 30.
