Use multiple choice questions as a warming-up and get a profile of your group

Poll

Polls are often used as warm-ups and to get to know a group a little better. The advantage of the poll is that, of all the QANDR modules, it is the most conventional, because everyone has answered a multiple-choice question before. In QANDR sessions, Polls are mostly used as an introduction to a session for some general questions about the topic, where not much discussion is possible. If the facilitator then wants to go into more depth, other modules such as Grading, the Dilemma and the Quadrant offer more starting points for a nuanced discussion.

Watch a video below where we demonstrate how the poll works.
