Efficacy of interventions
It would be really interesting to see what a social network would look in a summer camp, for example, pre- and post- team-building as an intervention.
As a teacher at an expeditionary learning school, I get the feeling that putting my students on expeditions with each other gives them stronger bonds with one another. But - is my intuition correct?
