Description of the tool

The facilitator introduces participants to the aims of the exercise and explains that they will have to
learn to juggle within a limited time frame. Each participant gets three balls and is invited to start
learning to juggle. They have different options to help them learn:
· watch the instruction video
· read the instruction sheet
· go to a teacher who will instruct them
· find their own way of learning
They will have half an hour to learn how to juggle.


In small groups (four – six participants), look back at the experience:
· How did you start to learn? Did you make a plan or did you just start doing?
· Which of the different learning options did you choose and why?
· Are you satisfied with how far you got?
· What were the difficult moments?
· How did you try to overcome those moments?
· Did you ask for help from others?
· Did you look at the others? Did they have different strategies?
· Can you connect this experience to how you normally learn?
· How do you think you can further improve?
· What would be your next steps?
