Adventure-based Learning (ABL)
Adventure-Based Learning, is designed to introduce trainers to a set of invigorating tools that you can use to build group cohesion, explore conflict, examine leadership roles — all in a fun, experiential way. This 2-day workshop will teach you how to integrate adventure-based learning tools to make your teaching more dynamic and more valuable to your participants.
Traditionally part two of the Super-T, Adventure-Based Learning, is designed to introduce trainers to a set of invigorating tools that you can use to build group cohesion, explore conflict, examine leadership roles — and have fun! Adventure-based learning provides physical and intellectual problems for groups to solve. The “group challenges” help people explore issues of leadership, cooperation, and conflict. The hands-on activities provide a laboratory for people to experiment with different ways to lead or support a team. As with other experiential training, at the end of each exercise participants explore options for greater effectiveness. Because a group is making decisions in the moment, ABL helps groups see their own dynamics more clearly. Its a powerful method for team-building and self-discovery.
This workshop helps trainers incorporate challenges into their training designs so that they are more effective in building teams, developing leadership, and resolving conflicts. It will address theory about how to lead ABL activities plus chances to learn numerous new ones.
The workshop begins with breakfast and registration at 8 a.m. Tuesday, and runs until about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. Please be advised that this workshops is an experiential package, partial attendance is not allowed and this workshop may include evening sessions.
We receive and accept applications on a rolling basis, but aim to confirm all participants at least a month before the training. We’re mindful that folks coming from out of town need time to book travel, and we’ll follow up as soon as possible about the acceptance process. Please don’t book travel or accommodations until we confirm registration.
We’re committed to accepting a diverse group for each training and to supporting folks with less access to resources to attend. People of color, working class folks, and folks from less-resourced organizations are encouraged to apply. We also aim to accept people with specific groups, projects, or organizations back home to apply what they learn.
