One of the things we know about good group conversations is that they combine skilled facilitation with structure. We’ve developed a library of conversation guides to help students hit the ground running. These conversations are structured around Big Questions - questions that matter to everyone and that everyone can answer. Big Questions are different from hard questions. While hard questions rely on expertise and lead to debates, Big Questions rely on wisdom and experience and lead to conversations.

Our guides come in both participant and facilitator versions. The facilitator guide contains reminders and cues to help the leader steer the conversation, as well as tips and facilitation resources. The participant guide contains everything a group needs to jump into an engaging conversation.
