What do we read in the Scientific Dialogic Gatherings (SDGs)?
"[…] in dialogical learning, people decide collectively, through discussion, the aim and
contents of their discussion." (Flecha, 2000, p. 17)
The people participating in SDGs are the ones who choose the works read and shared. This is based on a selection of proposals using the following criteria:
- Classical texts from the scientific field must be selected, and when selecting current texts, they must be published in journals with scientific impact, validated by the international scientific community.
- The authors must be figures whose contributions have had global impact.
- The impact classification of scientific journals should be taken into account.
- The works must be original texts belonging to the original source or author.
- The works must have some criteria of excellence.
- The works must make a social contribution.
- In the case of translated texts, the quality of the translation must be ensured.
- The participants’ ability to work on a text with a certain level of difficulty must not be underestimated as in these cases, there are much greater opportunities for understanding and reflecting together.
