The modules are designed for campus professional staff to be offered within professional development activities (training days, retreats, etc.) Some campus professionals have also found the materials useful for student leadership trainings, depending on the nature of the group and their readiness to talk about worldview. Modules focus on self-reflection, interrogation of biases around worldview, and activities to practice discussing religious and worldview identity from our own perspectives.
The modules are all between 2 and 5-page PDF files, with the option to choose which modules you would like to include in your workshop. After completing a standard introductory mini-module each module can be tailored for your specific group. Regardless of which module(s) you choose, please take time to review the facilitator’s guide, which provides information on the items to consider when preparing to facilitate these modules. The minimum time you will need to facilitate a workshop is 90 minutes. Please visit the library page to find more extensive descriptions for each module.
- Over time, we hope that a critical mass of professionals who complete a BRIDGE workshop will demonstrate:
- Authenticity and vulnerability in worldview engagement
- The ability to build trust and rapport across lines of worldview difference
- Understanding of the nuance of worldview engagement
- Willingness to engage the experiences and perspectives of others in the face of deep disagreement
We offer one-on-one coaching with an IA staff member should you need support preparing to facilitate your workshop. Please be in touch with us to share your experiences and feedback!
