HARKNESS METHOD


The Harkness method is a learning method  established in 1930 by Edward Harkness at the Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire, United States. It involves twelve students seated in a large, oval table* to discuss ideas in an encouraging, open-minded environment with a teacher guiding the group. The Harkness method intention was created to develop, among students, the courage to speak, the compassion to listen and the empathy to understand.


¨It is not about being right or wrong as Edward Harkness said, it is a collaborative approach to problem solving and learning.¨


*oval table: As King Arthur´s round table, each member´s opinion is given the same value.
