"Dialogue is not like other forms of communication (chatting, arguing, negotiating and so on). Dialogue is an activity directed towards discovery and new understanding, which stands to improve the knowledge, insight, or sensitivity of its participants. Dialogue represents a continuous, developmental communicative interchange through which we stand to gain a fuller apprehension of the world, ourselves, and one another." Dialogue in Teaching: Theory and Practice, Burbules 2003, p.8.
