Voir Dire is a proposed series of Edgewood workshop discussion sessions, open to all residents, covering a wide range of topics of general interest. The plan is to deal with one or several independently chosen discussion topics in each session, beginning each new topic with a relevant video (such as an internet-based lecture or TED talk) followed by open discussion.

When discussion fervor seems to subside, we move to the next topic as time permits. Initial sessions of this series are billed as a pilot program, meaning that they are experiments to gauge interest and tune parameters. One experimental issue involves the choice of topics to be discussed: we’re attracted to a democratic choice (ala the popular What’s On Your Mind series), although the mechanics of this approach are unclear. We may explore other schemes as well. Possible topics will be available online at http://edgewood.online/voirdire/menu.pdf and posted in the ELL Book at the Life Enrichment Desk.
