In an open space, ask participants to arrange themselves in a line-ups or groups which illustrate our individual differences in motivation and emotion e.g., by (do 4 of these, including the emotion question at the end):
- Thumb-size (line-up) or hair colour (to get warmed up)
- How long have you been studying at UC? (line-up)
- Why did you choose to participate in a virtual tutorial?
- What is your favourite food? (eating motivation)
- Who are you likely to vote for in the next federal election? (political motivation)
- What job/career do you hope to be doing in 5-10 years' time?
- How have you been feeling today? (mood)
For each exercise:
- Ask participants to introduce themselves to the people next to you / in their group.
- In a respectful way, ask people at the extremes or from each to group to briefly explain their position/perspective/preference or reasons.
Book chapter development
- Conduct a quick poll of who has:
- a Wikiversity user name?
- signed up to a book chapter topic?
- started editing?
- Facilitate a roundtable discussion, based on each person's interests and progress. Ask students to share their name and the topic they've chosen or what topic areas they are interested in. Depending on each person's stage of development, briefly discuss, explain topic further (or invite student to explain), suggest related areas, or enquire further etc. e.g.,
- What chapter topic(s) are you interested in?
- If unsure, what are your motivation and emotion interests? What are you most curious about?
- User name
