How to Devise Your Workshop
Mon, May 15, 2017, 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM AEST
So you have been asked to run a workshop?
This is a 3 part set of introductory workshops running over 3 weeks, to help you shape your own workshop idea and put it into practice.
Teaching is great fun, but it is stressful too, part public speaking, part planning to create understandable content and more.
This mini-course is designed to help people formulate a short one off workshop. It's also useful for those who would like a glimpse into the issues of teaching in a formal setting as well. With the academic year beginning many of us will be teaching for the first time and this class will help you consider your personal teaching style.
Even those of us who have never thought of teaching are being asked to 'perform' at work and make a presentation. Tell others how it's done. But where to start? Or perhaps you have a business and you have been asked to share 'how you do it.' Or maybe a workshop is just what you need to show off what your bakery, florist or office has to offer.
Whatever skill you wish to translate into a workshop format, there are certain things you need to pay attention to. This hands on mini-course will
Cover basic learning concepts
Help you plan a 1 hour workshop
Introduce handy tools
Pace your material
Help you decide what to include and what to leave out
Provide peer and teacher feedback on your workshop
There will be some homework over the 3 weeks and in the last week you will give the group a taster of your workshop to help you practice in a safe and encouraging environment.
Please note this mini-course is not a qualification, nor does it cover childhood learning and is suited for those who are going to teach in a non-accredited setting or feel they need to get a little confidence..
Just book on one of the dates for the 3 classes, the cost is $50 for all 3 classes. Plus Eventbrite charges.
