Delphi, A Critical Review. A Research Report.
Weaver, W. Timothy
The Delphi technique is a questionnaire method for organizing and shaping opinion through feedback. Although Delphi was originally intended as a tool for scientific and technological forecasting, its more promising educational application appears to be as (1) a method for studying the process of thinking about the future, (2) a pedagogical or teaching tool that forces people to think about the future in a more complex way than they would ordinarily, and (3) a planning tool that could aid in probing priorities held by members and constituencies of an organization. Related documents are EA 004 239 and EA 004 240. (Author/RA)
