|German term or phrase: Blitzlicht|
|For a training program I need an English version of the teaching/assessment technique called in German a "Blitzlicht" - for an excellent explanation of what this is please see:|
Does anyone knoe if there is a standard English term for such an activity. (My best suggestion otherwise is 'spotlight'.)
|'flash response' method/technique|
I think 'spotlight' works quite well but, as Andrew says, it would also be good to make the rapid-fire, interactive aspect clear. You might be interested in this reference where it's simply presented as the 'flash' method:
"Flash - Blitzlicht
A group method to quickly assess the momentary state of mind of each participant in the midst of a teaching or discussion phase, most easily applied to a circular sitting order. The participants make a short statement in turn, starting with somebody volunteering to begin or designated by the tutor. The result is a “flash picture” of a given learning process." (UNESCO Glossary of Adult Learning in Europe)
My proposal is loosely based on that. If the "flash picture" aspect is what matters, though, then maybe you'll need something completely different (like freeze frame?)

a Blitzlicht is not a spot light but rather a flashlight and the English expression is the same.

|Swiss, I have to confess that answers like this really get my goat - your reasoning is nonsensical and the examples you give are completely off the point. You're just wasting my time and yours.|
