What you have learnt in this module

Introducing participants through games helps them to open up to each other and to build up rapport between the participants and facilitators during the workshop.

Sharing of the objectives and expectations of the participants helps to match their expectations with the workshop topics. This makes it possible at the very start of the workshop to change topics according to the needs of the participants.
