A Dialogic Gathering (DG) is both an educational and a cultural activity where all participants discuss best universal works in literature, art, music, science and other domains, and together construct meaning. DGs enable anyone to have direct access to the universally recognised “best works”, regardless of their age, gender, culture or ability.
Dialogic learning is based on the theory that learners develop a deep understanding of a subject through discussions which build upon each person’s cultural intelligence and support shared creation of meaning.
DG have been identified as one of Successful Educational Actions in INCLUD-ED Project (FP6) for their proven capacity to improve learning, emotional self-regulation, and the overall learning climate. DGs help to raise the quality and extent of interactions of all participants.
