This activity started as a response to my observation of other discussion techniques on campus which I perceived to be failures. None of those alternatives have lasted more than two semesters. The current system also started slowly, attracting only 10% of the students in the first semester but has attracted over 50% of the students through the past three semesters. It is widely regarded as an ongoing success by both the students and the many expert discussion leaders who have given their Sunday afternoons to meet with my students. The audience averages over 300 every Sunday and this approaches "evangelistic numbers" here in the "Bible belt". A crowd that big inspires an exciting level of interaction if I manage to bring in appropriate moderators.
