Why Discussions?

Since Antiquity, we have understood the power of discussions in education.

Today, research shows that discussions double student learning outcomes, and teach transferrable skills like communication, critical thinking and collaboration.

Discussions also encourage open-mindedness, foster empathy for different perspectives, and help students develop interpersonal relationship skills.
