Thank you [email protected] Toolkit, from everyone at St James!
For the past 18 months, I’ve been championing ‘speed-dating‘ as an alternative mechanism for staff professional development sessions.
It’s not a silver bullet, nor is it a gimmick, but as an idea for bringing staff together to talk about teaching, it works!
It is so much fun to be around you and 6,000 of your closest friends!
The energy is high and the atmosphere is something that you don’t find anywhere else, but at Utah State. These costumes also help a person get ideas for their costume next year!
Without exception, staff who provided feedback (90% of staff) made the following comments: As an unexpected reward, I received ‘Hero of the Week’.
The staff received a pile of fresh ideas and the students got the same the very next day!
On arrival at Shaka Zulu you will be welcomed by one of our friendly hosts.
When all the guests have arrived the host will explain how the evening will unfold and you will be provided with a scorecard, name badge and pen.
When the event begins women will be seated and men will rotate between tables every 4 minutes.
At the end of each date guests mark on their scorecard whether they would like to see that person again.
My favorite event at the howl is definitely the huge dance party in the field house!
