Shared experience

When you’re travelling around, you talk to people who have been where you’re going. You do it to find out what it’s like, and their tips.

When you’re working, you talk to people who have done what you have to do. You do it to get their shared experience and tips and helpful points.

When you’re a parent, you talk to other parents. You do this to get their shared experiences and tips.

So with student engagement, why not set up situations where students can talk to each other and get the tips? Why is it even a question that we would do this?
