Please join Tanenbaum as we launch two new patient modules as a continuation of our SimClinic series. Bring your curriculum into the 21st century, with our newest online learning modules. These modules explore doctor-patient relationships and approaches when a patient’s religion or culture is impacting their decision-making. These modules are created to help medical students gain the necessary tools for navigating difficult conversations around religion and culture. In this session, we will be discussing simulation as a learning tool for students, particularly in this current environment, and would love your feedback on our newest patient scenarios.

All those who attend and complete the modules and user survey will be eligible to win one of ten $10 Amazon gift cards.

(Dis)Information Webinar Postponed

Friends 
 
Like you, we realize the gravity of COVID-19 and how rapidly things are changing.
We have therefore decided to postpone our webinar, The (Dis)Information Session: The Impact of Fake News on Religious Communities. We know that this is a very important conversation, but for the immediate future, all of us need to focus on physical distancing, socially connecting—and staying as healthy as possible.

We will be back in touch in the not-too-distant future with a new date, but for now, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well,

Joyce S. Dubensky
CEO, Tanenbaum

What are the Facts on Fake News?

As any dedicated news junkie knows, people are talking about fake news—and that includes what you think about people from different religions. But have you ever asked yourself…

  • Is “fake news” even real?
  • Or is it a falsity in itself?
  • If it’s real…is it influencing me and what I think?
  • Are my opinions really based in fact?

To answer these questions and more (with you!), we’re hosting The (Dis)Information Session: The Impact of Fake News on Religious Communities, a free live webinar conversation and interactive training, on March 19 from 5 – 7 pm EST.

It’s time to think critically but openly about the hard issues that confront us, our communities, and our world.

Join Us and RSVP for the (Dis)Information Session on March 19!

 

Extreme Prejudice: Live Webinar on Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Extreme Prejudice

Duration: 1 Hour

Why teach about extremism? Not teaching about it can put students in danger. Lack of education about religious diversity has left students—particularly Muslim and Sikh students—vulnerable to bias and bullying by classmates and teachers who don’t understand the full context of religious extremism. This hostility can make it difficult for students to learn and even puts their physical safety in jeopardy. Expanding your students’ knowledge of world religions—and the diversity that exists within them—is critical to combating these dangerous stereotypes and fostering empathy in the school community.

Join us and our friends from the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding for this one-hour webinar, and learn try-tomorrow strategies that can help you teach about extremism accurately and safely, such as discussing extremism across multiple religions, examining the economic and political contexts in which extremism arises, highlighting religious peacemakers and empowering your students to make their school more inclusive.

You’ll receive a certificate of completion once you finish this webinar!
