ACTIVITY: Student Idea Speed Dating!
Using BREAK OUT ROOMS Students will move into 3-4 person groups to share their ideas for pitches and workshop ideas together. Groups will be assigned randomly. Meetings will be only 5 minutes long… so speak quickly!
In your LAST meeting you can privately message me if you’d like to continue a conversation you began with another student. I’ll pop you guys in the same break out room! Be sure you have each other’s contact info if you decide want to work as a team.
Then, let’s wrap up by share your ideas!
