BSILI 2019: Welcome to the Mountain!

Unknown

First of all, welcome to BSILI! We are so glad to have you here at the mountain with us, dedicating time to be a leader for yourself and your college.  For so many of us, BSILI has been, and continues to be, an intensive and transformational experience.  We hope it is the same for you.

Now, Get ready to BSILI!


Marshmallow Challenge!

Working together in mixed-college teams, participants created “marshmallow structures” out of spaghetti, tape, string, and a single marshmallow. Teams learned to collaborate quickly and work to create something new. A hilarious and productive trial-and-error endeavor, participants created some interesting structures.

We then watched the Tom Wujec video, “Build a Tower, Build a Team” and shared takeaways:

 Norm Setting

Norm setting is a very important practice as we begin building and sustaining community. We then set norms for BSILI and created some inquiry questions:

Mapping Community/Locating our Why

Next up was Mapping Community/Locating Our Why.  The community mapping activity asked participants to surface community and  college metaphors, to interrogate the space between them, and then as teams to come up with an ideal metaphor of campus community to work towards as we transform our institutions.

We then read “The Weave of History,” reflected on connections between the metaphors we created and our own personal “Why,” and wove them together as teams.
