How:
Alternative 1:

  • Students work individually, in pairs or groups to compile a set of questions for different topics covered during the semester
  • Questions can be submitted to an open workspace or forum well ahead of the planned Q&A session, this will help structure both the session, but also students’ cognitive thinking process

Alternative 2:

  • Individuals or small groups find information on a topic, then prepare and deliver a short informative session in a plenary session.
  • A time is set aside for a discussion/answer session.
  • Questions may be submitted in writing at the previous session (good for shy students), or they may be oral.
