Workshops

CSWAC’s Learning Series offers workshops of interest to the public, each includes the following features below. We also offer workshops and other opportunities to organizations and groups. To learn more, click here.

PLATFORM

Our workshops take place using the Zoom online conferencing software.

FACILITATION

Each workshop is conducted by a team of CSWAC facilitators who are also racial justice activists with a history as organizers working in cross-racial alliances.

SCHEDULE of SESSIONS

Each workshop meets virtually in 3 sessions of 2 hours each for a total of 6 hours.

Virtual sessions are scheduled a week apart on the same day of the week. For example, a workshop that begins on a Tuesday will hold the second session at the same time on the following Tuesday, and then the third and final session at the same time on the Tuesday following that.

Workshop sessions are live via Zoom. When possible, we list out the starting time by time zone (Eastern, Central, Mountain, and Pacific). But when an app or display only allows for a single time, then times are given in Eastern time.

Live virtual attendance is not mandatory, but we strongly encourage you to attend the live zoom session.

All virtual workshop sessions are recorded, and the recording will be made available after each meeting for viewing by registered workshop participants only. Recordings remain available for six weeks following the close of each workshop.

REGISTRATION

The registration fee covers one registration only. To register groups, please contact the registrar at robinalpern@cswac.org.

 

APPROACH

Our workshops are interactive and live. We use the following approaches:

  • didactic presentation

  • paired discussions

  • scenarios
  • case studies

We provide homework assignments to be carried out between sessions. Homework is optional and is not graded, but it may be a focus of review and discussion at the start of the next session.

A resource page is made available to participants. Resources consist of articles, websites, videos, and other online sources of information. Types of resources that may be included:

  • Copies of slide show presentations from each session
  • Video recordings of each session
  • Handouts
  • Homework assignments
  • Resources to review for each upcoming session
  • Supplemental resources

The resource page, including session recordings, will continue to be made available for to registered participants for a 6-week period following the close of the workshop.
