Pig#1: You know, with winter coming, maybe we should discuss what to do         about the wolf. 
Pig #2: Yes! We need to rebuild our house so the wolf will have no way to get in. I've prepared a list of all the things we'll need... 
Pig #3: Before we decide to rebuild we need to experiment try ideas and materials and... 
Pig #4: But my intuition tells me winter will be early, so we need start NOW! 
Pig #1: We need to look at other ideas first, next we plan our course of action, then... 
Pig #2: Hey, wait a minute! The fact of the matter is, we need to have a stronger house. I consulted with an expert down at The HomeBase, and he said... 
Pig #3: Perhaps if we just called the wolf and talked to him, we'll get to be friends and...
Pig #4: I think we should move to Hawaii! The wolf would never find us there and... 
Pig #1: But if we look at practical ideas first, next we experiment with each idea, then... 
Pig #2: The expert at The HomeBase said we can get everything on this list, including bricks, mortar... 
Pig #3: No, I think if we set up a meeting with the wolf and make friends with him, we could come to some mutual understanding of our differences and... 
Pig #4: Maybe we just move to Texas. I heard that wolves don't even LIKE Texans, so... 
Pig #1: We need to find more practical uses for our time. If we carefully plan our steps, then test each one for results... 
Pig #2: All these items on this list would only cost us $8,000 
Pig #3: You know, we could recognize our differences, but also our similarities with the wolf if we just sat down and talked to him... 
Pig #4: Even if we moved to Las Vegas and the wolf followed us there, he would turn right around because he wouldn't be able to take the heat. 
Pig #1: I've got a good plan with each step is in place, I'm going to move forward!
Pig #2: I'm going down to The HomeBase to get the material I need to build my OWN house! 
Pig #3: I'm going right over there to see the wolf and take the opportunity to communicate on the same level with him, despite our cultural differences! 
Pig #4: I'm packing my bags. You can find me in Florida!!!

Hi-I am looking for suggestions on presenting information on Learning Styles to a large group (approximately 250) of freshmen at fall semester orientation.  In the past I have successfully shared information on learning styles in classroom settings.  As this is the second afternoon of a two day orientation, any suggestions to make this large group session as engaging as possible?

My understanding is that I present information to the large group, students are to complete a paper and pencil inventory, and then the students will break into their "orientation groups" with a faculty member as a facilitator to discuss the results and how this information can be applied to their classes.

Thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are welcomed!
