Abstract: Want to increase student learning, retention, and comfort and make your programming more enjoyable (for students and you!)? Weâ€™ll discuss how to boost every program you deliver for your diverse student population by using interactive activities, intercultural communication theories, the stages of a group's life, experiential education theory, neuropsychology research, and community cohesion techniques. Within the conference call mode, weâ€™ll play activities together and discuss the whyâ€™s and howâ€™s of ordering, framing, facilitating, and debriefing them for optimal student development and connection. You will come away with tangible take-aways and creative possibilities for the future.
