Icebreakers are “tools that enable the group leader to foster interaction, stimulate creative thinking, challenge basic assumptions, illustrate new concepts, and introduce specific material.” (University Associates, 1983)

Good stuff indeed!

Check out our icebreakers!

Icebreakers also serve other purposes. They:

  • Introduce the participants to the facilitator, to each other and to the subject;
  • Show the participants that the way they view a certain situation may not be the only or best way to do so, thus increasing their desire to learn;
  • Reveal to the facilitator possible problem areas which he/she can address later in the workshop;
  • Provide information that the facilitator can later use within the workshop to involve the participants in the discussion/learning.
