Exploring with our senses came naturally to us as children. We started to learn about ourselves and the world around us through our opportunities to see, touch, hear, taste, and smell. However, as adults, our opportunities to learn through our senses are rare across many professional and academic contexts. Even searching the Internet for terms such as “five senses learning” first brings up resources written mostly for people in early childhood education environments.
It’s time to tap into the power of using our five senses in virtual sessions with adults. Do this – at the very least – to help participants stay engaged (and awake!) at the other end of the virtual room but, more importantly, to create opportunities for enhanced awareness, mindfulness, and learning for all. In this session, you’ll participate in many different sense-based activities that you can take back to your professional setting and use right away in meetings or learning events. All activities have been designed according to Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, to help everyone participate in the activities equally. Join Beth for this fun and interactive session to ignite your five senses online. All activities will be provided to you after the session in a comprehensive handout.
