It's good to learn from an activity; a provocation of some sort, a process to engage with, a moment to reflect, and a chance to share. I've built dozens of conference events and tutorials – here are frameworks for exercises that I've used. They tend to work well with groups; I hope you find them valuable when you try them with your team.
Most of these exercises arealready on my GitHub. Here, they're perhaps a bit tidied up, with some thought on how they've worked for me. Join the community to add your comments, and to learn from others.
I run several of these as short online workshops, ideal for lunch-and-learn sessions.
You'll find links to some exercises below, organised by workshop.
This page needs plenty of work; I need all the exercises linked here individually, and I need to organise thematically rather than offer a handful of bare links under an enigmatic workshop title. Each exercise will be a post on this site, and I'll run them from time to time with members.
My old exercise page contains links to Questions For Testers (not an exercise), Bulk Testing, Robot Sim (needs Flash), several Puzzles, and the paper and exercises (also need Flash) for Four Exercises for Teaching Exploratory Testing. It's out of date and incomplete, and that is one of the main reasons for moving to this site.

OMG so much stuff over so many years. All ephemeral, most lost, some worth retrieving. Details to be added.
