- Talk to each other, not just to the discussion leader or facilitator.
- Refer to evidence from your own experiences to support your ideas, and avoid speaking for others or making sweeping generalizations.
- You do not need to raise your hands to speak, but please pay attention to your “airtime” – how much you have spoken in relation to others.
- Don’t interrupt.
- Don’t put down the ideas of another person. Without judging the person who you may disagree with, state your alternate interpretation or ask a follow-up question to help probe or clarify an idea.
- Above all, treat everyone in the space with respect and dignity.
