Discussion Questions

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The objective of short discussion questions is to:
– Introduce, in an active way, the main topics or skills of any module.
– Allow the participants to discover for themselves what the module or topic is about.
– Provide the participants with a chance to show what they know and give their view on things.
– Give the Instructor the opportunity to find out the level of participants’ understanding of the issues.
– Allow participants to learn from the other participants.

Structure of the Short Discussion Questions

Short case studies consist of two parts:
A – the issue part: the story or situation.
B – the question part: what we want the participants to do with the story.

A The Situation or Issue
The directors of XY tanners wish to improve their reputation as a Clean Production organisation. In the past neighbours have complained that they are very dirty indeed.

B The Question
How should XY go about improving their reputation and image?

Guide to designing short discussion questions

– The situation should be short (no more than fifty words).
– It should describe a real life problem related to a subject of the session.
– Limit the time taken. Examples – ask for say four suggestion from each group.
– The questions should be open – ask what, or who or why or how, or where, or by whom.
– Avoid a question which start with “do” or “does”. The answer will always be “yes “or “no” which is not a discussion.

Each answer gives the instructor the opportunity to confirm the participants’ insight and grasp of the issues. .
