Ice breakers

Ice breakers can be useful in the first tutorial to reduce tension, to immediately create a climate of student participation and to help students and the tutor get to know each other.

In an effort to put the students at ease, Rosina starts the ice-breaker activity by relating an embarrassing experience she has had. The students then have an opportunity to meet and share stories with others.
