If you understand why it’s so important to break up your lectures and are looking for lots of new ideas, the latest episode of the Lecture Breakers podcast by Dr Barbi Honeycutt is for you.
I was invited to be a part of this fascinating conversation, and to guide and squeeze the most value from our time together, Barbi asked me to share some of my favourite lecture energiser ideas for four different scenarios:
We also talk about how to work with students who are unwilling, resistant, or hesitant to engage in a lecture and why the concepts of ‘play’ and ‘flow’ are so critical in any learning environment.

It’s no fun sitting through a long, boring lecture, or worse, having to deliver one to a sleepy group of students or colleagues.
Energisers are fantastic for those moments when your group needs to move their bodies, refresh their energy or if you want to inject a little bit of fun and energy into the room. The best energisers are those which require no props, are super-easy to present and run for a minute or two.
The fun exercises I share in the podcast are all available in playmeo’s online database of group games & activities.
