Werkvorm: Group discussion (or problem-solving discussion) | Dialogue
- Reflective discussion as part of a group, pooling knowledge/ideas/opinions with the aim of learning from this. A stimulus to creative, problem-solving and evaluative thinking.
- Someone (teacher or student in a smaller group) is appointed as moderator. Without impinging on the subject matter, this person guides the discussion through the different phases (defining the problem, defining the scope of the subject, dissecting the problem, seeking solutions, discussing propositions, formulating the conclusion).
- Pitfall: students must have sufficient background knowledge.
- Variants: one empty chair, carousel discussion, triangular discussion, forum discussion/panel, debate, with or without a role.
