Learning Exchanges

Learning Exchanges

Twice a year we invite the community of scholars, practitioners and students interested in using the lens of CMM and taking a communication perspective to help address issues and challenges our world is currently facing. Our hope is to create a learning environment of support to explore and share new developments, understandings and practices around a timely and relevant common theme.

During the spring of each year, we have a Learning Exchange specifically designed for graduate students on the East Coast of the United States. In October, we offer a Learning Exchange for anyone interested in learning more about making better social worlds through the use of CMM and the communication perspective. These exchanges typically alternate between the West coast of the United States and Europe.

All of our Learning Exchanges are opportunities to experience CMM in action and to develop stronger relationships with others around the globe who are working in their spheres of influence to help make better social worlds.
