Workshop Practice: Dragons’ Den, from the Open Space Learning Project

Description

Dragons’ Den is an activity loosely based on the BBC television show of the same name. The idea is that participants pitch, sell, or otherwise offer for scrutiny, some element of their work to a group of initially neutral (this can be calibrated according to the nature of the task) ‘dragons’. It’s perfectly possible to use members of the group as dragons, but it is more effective to bring in outsiders. This activity works as well for pitching ideas as it does for inventions or products. It is important to limit the time for each presentation, and students can pitch either individually or in groups. If the whole activity is ‘in group’ it is important to debrief thoroughly after the event.
