This course engages with three popular methods for large-scale, dialogue-based public participation on public policy issues: the 21st-Century Town Hall, Deliberative Polling, and Citizen Juries. Each process helps participants learn about an issue, create space for in-depth deliberation and generate detailed feedback on public policy options. Participants will also explore, and apply to their own work, key ingredients of large-scale processes, including developing discussion content and questions, as well as outreach strategies that involve large numbers of diverse participants.
