Facilitation tips, games, and energizers « 350.org Workshops

Making your workshop interactive, participatory, and fun will be key in engaging your participants and creating an effective learning environment.  To help, many sessions already have participatory activities built in to the curriculum, and here we provide a number of ideas for energizers, name games, and interactive activities that you can adapt and incorporate to keep your participants energized and ready to learn. Have a great activity or tip to add?  Email us at workshops[at]350.org.

 

Sharrock's insight:

I look at these approaches to explore for teaching in September (the beginning of the school year). Training students to perform daily tasks (handing in homework, noting homework, using classroom website, note taking, etc). It may also be a way to set the tone of the classroom. I see it this way: trainers are often consultants, people outside of an organization. they have to connect quickly, establish presence, establish credibility, and must ultimately engage the people they are training. Any website that collects and specializes in the development of trainers and training, may be a gold mine for teachers to improve on skills. It doesn't matter that training is focused on narrow skills and goals; training is similar to teaching. Often, teachers train students BEFORE educating them.
