I have read and heard much about the "Socratic Method". Two of my
instructors have declared it their preferred method of teaching. I have
also seen it referenced on this list several times. Thinking back over
the years (not knowing it had a name) I feel I learned the most from those
exercising this method.

I am becoming very interested in learning more about it and would like to
know if anyone can give me a few general guidelines that would help me to
understand a transition into this method (self evaluation, of sorts).

Also, is it possible that this form of inquiry is a characteristic of
Learning Organizations?
