Design educational workshops that engage and inspire

April 11, 6:00pm - 8:00pm EDT. Hosted at Spacious (NYC-N-6-Kent)


About this FieldTrip

This is a 2 hour workshop about workshops :)

The best workshops are energetic, educational, fun, and impactful. Unfortunately, many aren’t. This session aims to help you create better workshops so you can share your skills and expertise with the world in new ways.

In this session attendees will learn how to:
- design a simple, powerful and scaleable workshop/short course format
- create clear and specific learning objectives
- effectively use a variety of teaching formats
- utilize some of the most important elements of effective facilitation when working with a group
- avoid common pitfalls

By the end of the session attendees will be well-placed to start fleshing out their workshop concept so they can start running their own sessions on just about any topic. Perhaps some of them could be future Field Trips!

Attendees:
- It’s preferable if you have a topic in mind for a workshop you want to create, but not essential
- Attendees are welcome to bring pen and paper to make notes
