Great discussion and great input. If we think of roleplay as practice and not knowledge transfer then the level of feedback has to be at a professional level. Imagine if professional athletes or artists only relied on peer feedback. In order to create a safe practice, measure the skill level (for ROI and learner journey), and deliver the content knowledge effectively hire professional roleplayers and do the roleplay scenarios 1:1 in private not in a group. This approach instantly removes all the social issues and the data proves overwhelmingly that the learners improve.
