The Expert interview is ideal for presenting content and encourages subject matter experts to share knowledge in an informal, relaxed setting. With minimal preparation of participants, the expert interview can be initiated in a workshop where participants don't yet know each other or the organisers. The open layout encourages greater participation due to its informal nature, and is less intimidating than a panel discussion.
The expert interview as a knowledge sharing tool is described by Neill McKee (former Chief, PCIS, UNICEF Bangladesh) with Dr. Hermann Tillman and Dr. Maria Salas in their Visualization in Participatory Programs Manual (1993)
For a session with 3 experts, place in front of the audience, 4 chairs on one side (for expert panel) and 2 chairs on the other (for audience member with questions) in the shape of an inverted V. The audience sits in a semi circle in front of these chairs.
