The DIALOGUES Compendium 

The Research Subcommittee is pleased to present all five DIALOGUES journal publications in a single compendium. Over the past five years, our annual planning tradition started with many conversations about the grand societal challenges we face. Our context for practice two decades into a new millennium brings us into direct contact with clients who seek new ideas for improving learning environments, stoked by some promise from research. We always started with dialogue and through a sharing and listening process we could commit to a singular topic for each Fall launch. Now, as a collection, we cover five grand challenges, each with its own complexities and nuances based on the specific angle of research.
