Teambuilding Activity

Core Competencies: Leadership, Marketing, Planning, Student Learning
June 26 – June 30, 2010
Indiana Memorial Union, Bloomington, Ind.

This interactive session will get the learning and the fun started! It is easy to go to a conference and be excited; it is generally more challenging to take the knowledge and ideas back to work and truly integrate it back into your job. Through this session, we will identify and practice ways to build connections among and between conference participants while also identifying specific ways in which the group can set a positive structure to receive and retain information while at IPDS.
