Teambuilding e-Workshop - October 2021

The Beacon Teambuilding Workshop was delivered online to both Schools and University Scholars over one day in October 2021, on back-to-back Saturdays. The theme was Team Performance.

The theory was briefly explained via video which Scholars viewed in advance of the Workshop as part of their Homework. The Scholars were also asked to review the following resources: 

Following an ice-breaker, the first session was spent discussing and ensuring understanding of the course content and reviewing previous Workshop lessons. To give a flavour, here are some of the slides used:

  • Team Quiz

The Sessions concluded successfully with a recap on learning; final thoughts from Scholars; and a huge thank you and goodbye from all.
