The Life & Mind Seminar Network

discussion-style session

Posted in General by Eduardo on November 13, 2006

Regarding formats, one suggestion for a discussion-style session (in contrast to talk-style) could be the following:

  • Topic suggested to be discussed announced in advanced
  • Seminar style (circle or rectangular shape) seating arrangement of the room (usually not payed attention too but crucial for the embodiment of a good discussion!)
  • 2 (even 3) persons volunteer as ‘leaders’ in the discussion for that topic
  • Each of them present their views, aiming for no more than 10-15 mins (or 5-10 slides?) each
  • Lots of open questions (e.g. actual questions for the participants?)
  • A couple of empty slides towards the end to construct something as a group.
