This is a great method to answer open questions of trainees with a "What if"-learning style. It prevents the trainer from answering all questions herself. With this method trainees can: 

  • close knowledge gaps
  • find solutions for personal problems
  • imagine themselves using their new knowledge in future and prepare themselves for obstacles

Instructions

At the end of a training block each trainee writes one open question on top of a sheet of paper. She hands the paper to the person on her right (and receives one from her left). On the sheet she receives she reads the question ans writes down any idea/ answer she might have She adds her name for any clarification questions. If she has no idea or answer, she hands the sheet to the next person.

Afterwards everybody hands the sheet to the person on her right ... The exercise ends when everybody has her original sheet back.

  • I've done a similar activity where the questions are written on a business size envelope and each learner has index cards. They answer the question on the envelope on an index card and include it in the envelope. Each successive person reads answers already in envelope. They can then support or expound on a card already there or add their own.
