Destination Imagination season is now well underway. If you’ve purchased your Team Pack(s) and are ready to dive into training, you’ll want to take advantage of the following opportunities:
The Basic Training Podcast for Team Managers & Coordinators is divided into 7 sections that you can listen to as your time allows. Whether you’re a new or returning facilitator, you’ll find useful information in these audio recordings. Returning Team Managers and Coordinators will wish to pay special attention to Getting Started, which contains a “What’s New This Season” segment.
An Advanced Team Manager & Coordinator Training Workshop is being held on Saturday, December 1 in Ames at the Iowa Energy Center. Training runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (although we may finish earlier). Even if you are a new Destination Imagination participant, you’ll benefit from this training which includes the following topics:
- Helping Your Team Understand How to Make Materials Work
- Drawing the Line Between Helping Your Team and Interfering
- Developing Skill Sets for Your Team Challenge
- Q & A with the Challenge Masters
Although this workshop is already included in your Iowa Membership Registration fee, we ask you to register HERE by Monday, Nov. 26th so that we can plan appropriately and have enough working materials on hand. Please note that it is NOT necessary for you to pay your Iowa Membership Registration fee in order to be able to attend this workshop. Coffee, water and snacks will be provided; just bring a sack lunch and yourself!
Finally, as you meet with your teams, take advantage of Instant Challenge training opportunities by visiting our Instant Challenge Library. This week’s newly-released Instant Challenges include:
