Grading is NOT being written down, because:
Role plays can only be effective, if participants are authentic and if they are able to use their personality to their full extent. This is only possible without the pressure of grades / marks. There will be an oral feedback and you will mainly assess yourself, based on the experiences you make. You may also learn by try & error and you may learn by negative reactions and discussions. These can only orrur by knowing that reactions are possible without being judged. Every personality has its advantages and it can only be fair to look at them without competition and degrading.
A relaxed atmosphere is the best nutrition for learning and for keeping learned content. Exams work against that.
We trust in your volonteer participation.
