What’s the question?

Tuesday, 13 December 2016 by

Usually exams are full of questions. What if we give answers instead of questions? Think of phrases or 10 possible correct answers and ask participants who will take the test to think what could be the question to such an answer. For example, “15 years” and the question that the participants should make would be

Don’t know!

I love it when I do not know the answer to a question. I love because it means that participants are really taking their learning seriously and they are not sticking just to the superficialialities. Ask participants to ask you tough questions. Give them some time to come up with challenging questions within their group.

Your comfort zone

Tuesday, 22 November 2016 by

Distribute among participants sheets of paper with a large circle drawn in the center. Asks each to draw their comfort zone. What does that mean? Well, within the circle they will draw those things that feel comfortable doing and outside the circle those things that they feel unable to do or makes them feel uncomfortable.

Hats

Bring two hats to class: a green one and a black one. Propose a challenge to participants, a challenge that they have to overcome. Ask participants to come up with concrete actions to face this challenge. Tell them that the important thing is to generate a lot of ideas and not to assess whether they

Just for fun

Although we create a safe environment in class in which participants feel comfortable to express themselves, share concerns and even make mistakes, participants feel closer to the trainer or facilitator during the breaks.

Relay race

Have you ever run a relay race before? Can we do one in class? Divide participants into groups of 3 or 4. Create an area in class – or outside- where they can safely move and run. Before class -or race- you’ll have to prepare some questions, enough for each group have to answer 6

3 days 3 things

Believe it or not participants are very observant. They observe our body language, how we dress and all the elements that we bring to class.

An APP

Tuesday, 18 October 2016 by

Have you ever thought of developing an APP for your workers? Right now most of us have smartphones that allow us not only call and use internet but also help us play and learn. You can design an application in which workers can play while learning about their labor rights and obligations and even develop

The best recipe

Tuesday, 11 October 2016 by

Ask workers to draw up the best recipe for a “delicious” work environment. For example, “we need 10 friendly supervisors, 3 daily smiles, 1 tablespoon of motivation and a pinch of listening”. Collect all the recipes and invite employees to lunch. If you print the recipes on coloured paper and distribute them among workers, they

It is you!

Using role-plays in class allows participants to practice skills they are learning. And because they are in a safe environment where no one is judging them, they feel comfortable to try things that in a real life generally they would not try. How do we get them to feel more comfortable in their roles? How
