What Are Icebreaker Games?
Icebreaker games are an essential way of introducing participants to each other and reinforcing aspects within a training course or meetings. Icebreakers will ensure participants get to know each other.
Icebreaker games are extremely important in sessions to:
- Facilitate Introductions
- Assist Group Formation
- Introduce Topics, Concepts, Or Themes
- Prepare Participants For Learning
- Energize The Group
Icebreaker games are usually employed at the start of a session or at stages where new material or sessions are beginning (e.g., after a break or to energize a group before a new topic is covered).
Most opening activity icebreaker games should last around ten to fifteen minutes – although there is a range of issues that may influence what icebreaker that you will employ.
