Session Title: The First Week of Class: Building a Virtual Learning Community
Presenter: Stephanie Speicher, Assistant Professor of Teacher Education, Weber State University
Date and Time: Friday, July 31, 2020, from 2:15 PM to 3:30 PM PDT
Format: Interactive Workshop
Session Details: This high-energy workshop will teach participants experiential activities to implement during the first week of class. Ice breakers, energizers, and team-building activities are not just time fillers or a trick up your sleeve; when used effectively, experiential activities can build a strong learning community and propel the comprehension of content. Learning communities built through an experiential approach can support the intentionality of community building. Come learn experientially, build connections with others, and apply learning to your particular context!
