Special Video Episode

Episode 19: Fishbowl in a Live Session

Fishbowl is a discussion strategy that focuses on both student-centeredness and listening skills. In a face-to-face classroom, you would arrange the students into a small group in the center of an outer ring. Students in the center would have a discussion and the students in the outer ring would observe. Students would rotate in and out of the participant and observer roles during the fishbowl. You would act as the facilitator of the discussion. An essential part of the fishbowl is the effectiveness of the questions. You may want to use Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain as a guide.

This short video shares a Fishbowl on Zoom that we attempted in a Live Session.
