Training Activities and Games
It is important to get delegates talking at a training session. The classic ‘icebreaker’ is often used in order to get delegates talking and introducing each other.
This page provides links and descriptions to activities that can be used as icebreakers on training courses.
These can be very simple, and used purely to get introductions completed. They can also be more complex and act as the start of the training course.
My Facebook Page has may tips for thinking about activities as used in a training course.
I have a blog on the advantages and issues of icebreakers along with the different activity types.
