Learning ActivityLEARNING ACTIVITY: INTRODUCTIONS OF FACULTY AND PARTICIPANTS

Note: Allow time for introductions to set a tone for the training that encourages participation and interaction. This is an opportunity for the trainer to get a sense of the group's levels of knowledge and experience. Introductions in large groups can be made around individual training tables. Introductions of all participants would be appropriate in small groups.
Participants and faculty should introduce themselves by providing their name, the nature of their job, their experience in sex offender supervision, and their expectations of the training.
