Background and Context of Debate:

Yes

  • Online, written dialogue enables deep reflection without time pressures.
  • Online dialogue is recorded for others to read and reflect on.

No

  • Dialogue and debate are best done in person. Humans are meant to communicate with one another face-to-face. The advantages are clear:
    • Allows for the exercise of public-speaking abilities.
    • Allows for emotions to be more clearly expressed through tone and gesture. The written word, particularly in dialogue, can be misinterpreted very easily. Face-to-face communications allow for mis-communications to be resolved more easily, which is very important in the context of discussing contentious and sensitive issues.
    • Group dynamic is allowed in a way that technology does not allow.
