Cross sections

This is a simple and effective method for spreading information quickly in large groups. Together with rounds, it can maximise participation.

Cross-sections involves forming new groups made up of one person from each of the original discussion groups. All the earlier discussions are then represented in the cross-section. Everyone is informed about how the original groups reasoned or worked and this takes much less time than accounts of all the discussions with everyone present.
