Icebreaker sessions for students

Community Contributor

Hi all

I’m hoping I can get some ideas from the community about good examples or ideas of icebreaker sessions for students.

We are looking courses where the student cohort are spread across multiple faculties and colleges and only meet a few times per year. This means most of the conversation and interaction is likely to take place online.

For that reason I’m trying to come up with ideas of icebreaker activities we can integrate into the course. If we can we are trying to schedule the first couple of lectures to be face to face sop at least they might have an idea of who each other is.

Has anyone used canvas for these type of “icebreaker & get to know each other” sessions?
