TD Game show!: Are you a super user?!?!

**(There are no slides for this session.)

Contestants: Great minds may think alike, but maybe you know the ropes just a little more.  So, meet the So Who Wants to be a SuperUser challenge.  Show off your chops and learn a thing or two from your colleagues.

Audience: You get the best of both worlds.  Sneak a peek into the minds of the contestants and learn the methods to their madness.  Rome wasn’t built in a day, but watch as the competitors try!

In a game show-like environment contestants will test out their StudioAbroad user skills in order to demonstrate their understanding of the system and the variety of ways that the software can be used.  It is an opportunity to look behind the curtain and see how your colleagues using StudioAbroad in other offices think and interact with the software.

This workshop is designed for two populations, contestants and audience members.  Contestants should be people who have used StudioAbroad, live, for at least a year.  Teams of 3-4 are welcome.  Audience members can be new users, with zero experience with the software, up to experts interested in exploring new ways of operating.  Audience members will benefit from watching contestants think through the steps required to complete a challenge.  Both groups of participants will benefit from the facilitated discussion lead by the moderator.

Peer learning is a great way for individuals to demonstrate and share knowledge, as well as learn from like-minded others.  Participants can experience a variety of ways a challenge can be completed, analyze the effectiveness of the various solutions, and decide which solutions are best implemented in their own practice.
