GROUP ACTIVITY AIMED AT DEVELOPING AND CRITIQUING IDEAS FROM DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES
The goal is to learn the skill of asking the right questions about new ideas.
Questioning is a dialogical process that works best in small group situations. It also requires participants in the process to take up various roles, such as defending an idea or trying to predict its consequences. This simple activity provides a framework for making these roles explicit and for practising the art of asking the right question.
- To develop an understanding of the consequences of ideas
- To develop critical thinking skills.
- To distinguish between ‘feeling’ or intuition, and sensing when considering ideas.
- To promote creative thinking
