Introduce your team

Time: 20 minutes

Introduction: You’ve just been placed in a group with a collection of people who you will be working with for the next few days. This activity acts as an icebreaker not just for you and your group but is a great way for the instructors to get to know more about you and your abilities.

Purpose: By sharing contexts you get to know one another better and break the initial nerves of working in a new group. It also helps you understand what skills currently exist within the team that can be taken advantage of during the training.

Tasks:

Each person in your group share with the other group answers to the following four questions. The scribe should take notes for each individual and share the groups answers to all the questions on this thread.
