Crossing Borders Education (Peer-led Dialogues):

Crossing Borders Education is a non-profit organization that specializes in interactive peer programs harnessing the power of film and empathic dialogue. They've developed virtual peer-led dialogue sessions based on their interactive program design and dialogue methodology. In our pre-conference workshop, we did an abbreviated demo version of the virtual dialogues, but applied it to an in-person context. If you are interested in applying the virtual dialogues within your institutional context, please contact CBE directly.
