Start Time:

Session Length:
80 minutes
Join an experiential educator with over 10 years of facilitation experience working among emerging adults and adult learners in individual and team settings. They have led hundreds of creative, inclusive, playful, nourishing, and developmental activities, trainings, and meetings, both in-person and virtually, and are eager to share with you some of their best community building practices. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn by doing, playing, reflecting, absorbing, and conversing with others in mindful, uplifting, and transformative ways. This session is designed to present an intentional teambuilding sequence that can be replicated from beginning-to-end or could be divided up and integrated into new hire trainings, one-on-one interactions, weekly staff meetings, academic classes, and even virtual happy hour fun amongst family and friends! The versatility and practicality of the delivery methods, learning technologies, and gamification practices shared will allow attendees to pick and choose what best suits their community’s needs and their own. Ultimately, attendees will leave with some new resources to upgrade their virtual playbook in hopes to create more purposeful and joyful moments for Rams to feel more connected with each other in a time we could all use it.
Goals and Target Audience:
All are welcome! This session is introvert-friendly and is crafted to be accessible in a variety of ways.
