Focus Group with teachers
What do teachers think about neuro-enhancement? What are their main interests and concerns when discussing the topic? Which impact may neuro-enhancement have on their students?

The approach of using small deliberative events allows for an in-depth discussion on a variety of topics concerning NE. It enables teachers to openly discuss their views on neuro-enhancement and the consequences such practices may have on their students.
Focus groups offer the opportunity for comprehensive discussion, thus reducing the fear of contact with unfamiliar topics.
