Round Table is a teaching strategy, employed by Robert Rehm at Zomergo camps - Summer Schools. Players of all (kyu)-strengths gather around a round table. Everyone gets a turn to propose the next move first. Next all others express their ideas and propose alternatives. After some discussion the teacher choses an interesting move.

His task in deciding the next move is delicate. It is a compromise of keeping the game balanced, simple enough for weak players and easy enough to explain why this particular move was chosen. The strategy works best with groups of 7 to maximum 11 players. Odd numbers help students to look at the position with a fresh mind, every time it's their turn, as they are black one time and white in next.
