About this event

  • 2 hours
  • Mobile eTicket

You have ideas that you want to share with the world. You want more people to engage with your content. You’ve delivered a talk or two (or ten!) and dream of people coming together to explore your topic in greater depth.

Facilitating a workshop is a great way to do just that. Workshops provide the opportunity for participants to get hands-on with your content and apply it to their work and lives. If you’ve done the work of developing concepts and narratives for a 40-60 minute talk, that’s more than enough material to design a workshop. Bonus: your design and research skills will come in handy.

Join us to take the first step towards turning your talk into a workshop.

In this two-hour workshop, you will:

  • Develop your eye to see the invisible arc of a workshop experience
  • Gain clarity on the kind of experience that you want to create
  • Understand how to work with learning objectives and constraints
  • Learn how to balance content delivery and activities (and not overload the agenda!)
  • Identify feedback loops that would accelerate your own learning

This event is for you if you have:

  • Experience being in different kinds of workshops, trainings, and events as a participant
  • Some facilitation experience or familiarity with leading meetings
  • A set of developed ideas that you’d like to turn into a workshop (optional)

Workshop Details:

We have always subsidized our community workshops to make them accessible as possible. You'll notice there are two ticket tiers for this workshop. If you are able to pay the standard ticket price, we ask that you do so. If paying the standard price would make this workshop inaccessible to you, we encourage you to pay the reduced solo rate.

Upon registration, you will receive instructions on how to join the workshop. You will also be added to a calendar invite and will receive a final reminder 24 hours in advance.

This will be an interactive workshop. We ask you to take the call in a place where you can have your video on and speak openly. The workshop will not be recorded.
