Duration : 10-15 minutes Objective : To help the participants to get to know each other and to start a dialogue amongst the group. Materials Needed : Pad and pen to take notes. Instructions : Explain to the participants that they will be interviewing a fellow participant as a way to help the group get to know each other. Then divide the group into pairs. Allow three-five minutes for each person to interview his or her partner. Ask each individual to be prepared to share two or three facts or events about the person they interviewed to help us learn more about their partner. When the group reconvenes, each person introduces his or her partner to the rest of the group. Discussion Questions :
- What did we learn about each other?
- How does this help us with today’s training?
- Is it an advantage to know each other better? Why?
