[This material was designed for use in a graduate course as a way of engaging learners in a process of providing in-depth information on a topic to others. It could be adapted by anyone desiring to learning about a subject by using a more formal process of talking with colleagues.]

We have found that most learners appreciate an opportunity to provide some in-depth information to each other in some manner during a course, even if they do not have the opportunity to participate in a study group. Thus, setting up a debate with one group for and one group against some topic in order to present a variety of views can be a worthwhile and enjoyable learning experience. This activity, too, can be carried out electronically if the course in on-line or if learners have access to each other through some electronic mail procedure.
