THE GENERAL RULES OF
DISCUSSION IN AL-HEWAR CENTER
- When the speaker has finished his/her
presentation, everyone who wants to ask a question or make a comment should raise his/her
hand. The Moderator will write the names down in order that hands are raised. The
Moderator, not the speaker, will ask each audience member to speak at his or her turn.
- Each audience member has three
minutes to ask questions or make a comment.
- The Center is a forum for respectful
dialogue. The purpose of the question and comment session is to try to understand the
opinions and ideas of others. Each person is given the courtesy of speaking without
interruption by anyone else in the audience.
- Audience members will have the chance
to ask a second question or make a second comment only after everyone else has had an
opportunity to speak once, and if time permits.
- If time runs out, the speaker is
usually asked if he/she will agree to stay after the event for an informal
discussion with audience members who wish to stay.
