In this article that I wrote last year on teaching and learning in a coven, I explored the ways in which people learn in a coven setting. I sought to show how diversity can be accommodated, and people can learn from each other as much as from the teacher.

This method of learning is generally applicable. I learnt it from my teacher training course, and have seen it applied more generally in all sorts of teaching and training situations.

It is especially useful for small group settings where you are discussing the kind of issue that has no single right answer, but where multiple perspectives on it are useful and worth sharing.
