App Assisted Middle Ground

The goal of this project is to exploit the outcomes of an applied philosophy and critical thinking project, called Middle Ground. In this project, FWB has developed an educational method for deliberative negotiation, i.e. a transparent, non-manipulative discussion about a controversial issue aimed at a reasonable compromise that fairly reflects the participants’ diverging perspectives. The current project specifically aims: at developing an app that enables large numbers of small groups of students to engage in such deliberative negotiations; developing a number of flexible course modules for a diversity of university and other curricula in which to embed the app; and at promoting the app. This project is interesting because it is useable within a large variety of different settings within the university and because it provides experience with developing apps as learning tools.
