Domande e risposte galleggianti


La pianificazione dell'accettazione e della risposta alle domande è una delle parti più difficili dello svolgimento di una riunione, un workshop o una presentazione. Ci sarà abbastanza tempo per le domande e risposte? Il pubblico è disposto a fare domande? Quante domande faranno? Accetto le domande alla fine o per tutto il tempo? Come faccio a sapere se alle domande è stata data una risposta utile?

Experiential learning & Debriefing session

Debriefing exercise process.PNG

This is a practical training module to teach how to brief and debrief an exercise.

There is a strong 'meta' aspect in this session: you have a real experiential exercise during the session, and you will narrow down on the experience of how the briefing and the debriefing were done by the trainers.

This way participants will have the chance to first take part in a debriefing as participants, and then analyse the experience they just had.

Workers and Watchers

Blindfold half of the participants and ask them to lay a rope on the floor in the form of a circle. Conduct a quick debriefing involving the blindfolded workers and the watchers. Blindfold the other half and give them the task of laying the rope on the floor in the form of a triangle. Continue with the debriefing discussion.

Review Roulette

noun_900334_B36AE2.png

Games of pure chance discourage smarter players from mastering new skills and knowledge. Games of pure skill discourage weaker players from trying hard once they fall behind. An effective training game strikes a balance between chance and skill. That's exactly what Review Roulette does.

Artful Closer

This activity begins with reflection, proceeds through nonverbal communication, and ends in a discussion. You can use ARTFUL CLOSER to debrief participants after an experiential activity. You may also use it as the final activity at the end of a workshop. You may even use it as an opening ice-breaker by asking participants to think about common personal experiences. For example, I began a recent session on presentation skills by asking participants to process their experiences with the most inspiring speech they had ever heard.
