On Feb. 2 SCC’s Center for Civic and Global Engagement organized a Moderator Training Workshop in the premises of the campus.

Over 17 students from different departments took part in the workshop which lasted over four hours.

The training allowed students to learn how to tackle heated debates in very peaceful manner and deliberate the issues from multiple angles and find common ground for action.

Explaining the overall goal of the training, Jen Sydow, the assistant director at Civic and Global Engagement spoke with North East Valley News and said the purpose of the workshop was to enable students to hear view of the both sides weather it is a personal setting or professional setting.

Deanna Villanueva-Saucedo Director of Community Engagement for Maricopa Community Colleges was the trainer.

“The moderator training workshop teaches student how to run public forums,” Villanueva-Saucedo said. “And even students don’t go on to run a formal public forum, it still imparts skills for how to have civil productive dialogue. “

Perpetual Booze an international student from Ghana is studying Information Technology at SCC.

“One thing I learned during this training is for being a moderator you need to be patient, you need to listen, and you don’t need to jump up and bring up your opinion simply because maybe you are affected, but you just have to be neutral,” Booze said.
