Proposal Abstract

This presentation will explore the use of simple experiential structured activities to engage students with each other, with course content and with learning reflection. Metaphors and memes are objects and ideas that can be used as ice-breakers but also as tools for both the introduction of topics, the exploration of ideas, meta cognitive reflection as well as assessment and evaluation of learning. They are effective in large group, small group and paired discussions are introvert friendly and inherently about sharing many voices and encouraging diversity of perspective. This workshop will explore a number of uses of these tools by engaging participants in a variety of different applications.

Statement

This presentation is about strategies for engagement of diverse learners and how to facilitate a learning community by personalizing learning in a fun and creative way.
