One of our staff brought in a beach ball and wrote categories on each segment. You toss the ball to someone else in the circle, and that person needs to answer the question posed or give an example from the category, e.g., a metacognitive approach, a department to which you might make a referral and why, or a tip for helping ESL students. You can use this approach as an ice-breaker as well sharing hobbies, major, home location, etc.

I am headed out of the country here in a few weeks so I am prepping all my beginning of semester tutor training. We have 1-2 days before each semester begins that we have tutor training. I try to have a game that offers review of info and competition. But I am out of new ideas for the tutors that have been for a few semesters. They like the games we play but I am looking to see if anyone on this listserv has a game they play with their tutors.
