About the exercise
- Plenary exercise
- Time required : 15 minutes
- Target audience : Any
To introduce participatory learning methods and help participants understand that through sharing their own experiences and knowledge with the group, they can each make an important contribution to the quality of the training.
A simple but effective exercise that introduces participatory learning methods and helps to set the tone. It is particularly useful in contexts where target audiences have strong internal hierarchies and in settings where participants may not be used to participatory, experiential learning due to rote-learning education systems.
