“What I have in mind is (a classroom) where (students) could sit around a table with a teacher who would talk with them, and instruct them by a sort of tutorial or conference method, where (each student) would feel encouraged to speak up. This would be a real revolution in methods.”
From this, the Harkness Table was born. It is a large oval shaped table designed to allow conversation and thoughts to flow. Students are encouraged not only to speak up but to also challenge and develop ideas rather than to rival and compete one another.
We at TheHarknessTable embody this vision.
