ORID is a multi-stage method for processing a group’s feedback and reflections on their experiences.
ORID was originally an acronym for:
Objective – the facts – what the group knows about the issue/experience
Reflective – emotional response – what the group felt about the issue/experience
Interpretive – meaning and learning – what have the group members earned about the issue/experience, what do these learnings means?
Decisional – response or evaluation – what is the decision, evaluation or future action.
