Exercise that gives the participants the possibility to dynamically share knowledge. I have developed this exercise myself, inspired by De Bonos’ six thinking hats.
When in need of knowledge sharing on a specific topic.
Best suited for:
How to get started:
- Place 4 stations on the floor – possibly with 4 flip overs, coloured pieces of paper, hats or the like.
- Ask the participants to go in groups of 3.
- Share the groups between the 4 points.
- explain that each point has its own function:
- at station 1 (the black) they are to talk about all the things which was difficult.
- at station 2 (the yellow) they are to talk about all the things that went well.
- at station 3 (the green) they are to talk about how to improve in the future.
- at station 4 (the red) they are to talk about which emotions they connect to the subject.
- Let them talk at a station for 2-3 minutes. Ring the bell and ask them to move on to the next station.
- continue until they have been at all the stations.
- The sum up can – if wanted – be done by collecting all groups at one station and share some highlights in plenary. Take them to all the stations this way.
- If desired, ask other questions at the stations. E.g. the red could be about how the perfect scene would look like, with everything succeeded.
