2020 Video Competition: Deep Listening

CID Video Competition

Kasriel, Emily. (2020, March 4). Deep listening: Finding common ground with opponents. BBC.

BBC is running a series on Crossing Divides, “the power and possibilities of encountering people with conflicting opinions, across divisions of race, class, faith, politics and generation.” One of their stories is about deep listening.

Deep listening involves being genuinely curious about someone else’s story, with a strong desire to understand them. It’s about connecting to them as an individual and establishing trust.

Deep listening can serve as a resource to students preparing a video for entry in the CID Video Competition this year, given that the theme this year is listening.

Crossing Divides is one of BBC’s efforts in line with Solutions-focused journalism.
