Community Gabfest: Warm ups and Motivation

On October 27, 2022 AlphaPlus hosted our second Community Gabfest.

Picture of the Jamboard we created during the Gabfest.

We asked the September participants to share their ideas for conversation starters. We got a great list. We decided to combine two ideas that we thought might go together.

The conversation starter for the October Gabfest is warm ups and motivation.

  • What are some warm up ideas instructors use with their class?
  • What techniques or approaches are people using to engage learners and keep them motivated on their educational journey?

We started with an Answer Garden warm up: What is your favourite thing about talking to literacy workers?

We used a Jamboard to guide our conversation: Wayfinders Gabfest 2 Jamboard.
