SFP 59 - Episode 59: Supporting communication choices: How to use Solution Focused ideas in university teaching with Dr. David Weber
„So, to me working with SF is working with people to enable them to make more effective communication choices.“
„The students pick up on the fact that I am in the business of trying to support people.“
„The quality of your experience of learning is the quality of the experience of the building and maintenance of relationships with the others that you are learning with.”
„What else did you do right?“Assoc. Prof. David Weber
In today’s episode, we talk with Assoc. Prof. David Weber at UNC Wilmington about
- how he got into Solution Focus and what fascinates him with SF,
- how he supports his students to see Solution Focused communication choices – role modeling, coaching his students, telling stories,
- how he coaches his students to major in communication and develop their personal and team skills,
- the concept of Tikun Olam,
- a story of a student using the miracle question in a team meeting and ways of teaching this question,
- what helped him to find his own SF style and the differences living in different countries made,
- co-creation and how he sees his students as solution searchers,
- how he started using SF in the classroom and how these experiences encouraged him,
- the differences SF makes in his everyday life,
- how the SF community provides this studio for being a real human being.
