The purpose of presenting your partner is to get the workshop participants to know each other.
Tips to include participants who are not able to:
Comfort and understanding of each others skills
*only if notetaking and question ideas comes in use
Step by step:
Divide the participants in groups of two.
Provide pen and paper for note taking for each group.
Ask participant 1 to ask participant 2 about their name and how they can contribute to the workshop, what is their expertise, what are they good at etc (5 min).
Repeat step 3 although switch roles (5 min).
Participant 1 presents participant 2 and vise versa to the rest of the group. All groups should be presented.
When doing this method you should consider:
- If participants have a hard time remembering, give them paper to take notes on
- If participants have a hard time remembering, make them the last one to listen to their partner and the first to present.
- If a participant has a hard time focusing avoid note paper as it can act as a distraction
