Monthly Meeting Recap: November (with Nelressa Faye)

In our November meeting, we were fortunate enough to have Nelressa Faye instill her top tips and tricks for using experiential activities for adult learners from her 15 years of experience in education and linguistics.

Nelressa was a great host and took a holistic approach to the session, contacting attendees beforehand to get to know them and using polls to allow the audience to decide which of her many suggestions for ice-breakers, mid-meeting breaks and closing activities we should cover in detail. By the end of the meeting, attendees had accumulated a great list of experiential activity ideas and the inspiration, generated by Nelressa’s passionate and knowledgeable teaching style, to put them to good use.

The Playful University Club aims to promote a culture that can foster play within the University by creating capacity for awareness, uptake, and exposure of play and playful learning. Ultimately, we aim to make the University of Exeter a place where learning is created and nurtured through joy, engagement and play, where learning to solve problems and overcome obstacles is a reward in its own right. The club hosts several activities each month including games nights and guest speakers. It is open to all University staff and Students and is a wonderful opportunity to support a compassionate community using play.
