Event description
Professor Alison Sinclair has exciting ideas on how to facilitate large group discussions

About this Event

Professor Alison Sinclair, School of Life Sciences

Facilitating discussions in large groups is difficult. Whatever the background of the group – students, faculty, professional services – both gauging the level of engagement with the topic and encouraging participation from all members pose challenges for the session leader. It is easy for a single voice or view to predominate and for the rich diversity of opinion and interpretation to be lost. I will provide examples of the value of a simple tool that allows for all opinions to be expressed and collected. We will explore the creative uses of the tool as we work in small groups to analyse the content and impact of a simple document leading to a period of reflection on all of the views.
