Shoe Shuffle Discussion

25 Mar 2020, 15:40



Moderator: Marjolein Oorsprong, PRACE aisbl

The last 20 minutes of the session will be used to do a shoe shuffle discussion, where the panel members react to statements by moving to the left (disagree) or right (agree) of the discussion leader. They are then asked to comment on their “movement” and in reaction to this the others can then move again. The audience can participate after every statement. The discussion leader can ask members of the audience to comment as well. The idea is not to have an “adversarial discussion” (some are right, others are wrong), but a discussion that allows “argument repair” where the proponents of a position revise their argument in response to criticism. We are not looking for truth, we are looking for wisdom.
