Arising from our various classroom discussion efforts, we have produced several guidebooks, papers, and reports that provide practical guidance for professors and other educators on using IF’s discussion methods in classroom settings. Most of these documents are available for download and are listed below. You can also find some other IF papers and reports on our pages for Papers and Other IF Publications.
You can download copies of any of these publications by clicking on the corresponding titles in the table below. You can also request a limited number of printed copies of most of these papers by submitting a Request Printed Copies form.
