Tip:
During a workshop, you may have your participants read a research article. Instead of having them read and then share as a whole group, try pairing and sharing.

  • Ask each participant to read the same article.
  • Provide highlighters and notepaper so they can highlight major points.
  • Have them keep notes or gather thoughts from the reading that answers "were there any new ideas that they learned?" and "were there any ideas that were different than what they thought or that challenged their ideas?"
  • Tell them to write a one-minute speech on their findings.
  • Have participants pair with another where one of the pair delivers their speech to the other and then vice versa.

After everyone has shared with another in their pair, then have a whole group discussion on the findings.
