Pre-Workshop Activity 2018

Activity 1 – Introduction

Let’s start with posting your introduction in Laulima. The intention of the introduction activity is to break the ice as we start to get to know each other. We will be spending a lot of time together in the next week and the hope is that we will be learning with and from each other. Some of you may be well acquainted with each other, but I’m sure you can share/learn something new.

Please Login to Laulima, go to the Forums Tool –> Pre-Workshop Activities–>Introduction to introduce yourself and include the following in your post:
  1. Post a photograph of yourself that has special meaning. It can be a favorite vacation photo or a family photo then write a little about yourself. You may want to share why the photo is meaningful.
  2. Share why you are taking this workshop.
