How to Run a Workshop Workshop

Howdy!  Just a quick request: we will start at 9:00am and will be unable to leave the workshop for latecomers.  Please arrive well before!

Note: happy to run this workshop again if we get lots of interest.

If you have been thinking about sharing your knowledge by running an IxDA Workshop, but haven't run a lot of workshops, this is the workshop for you!

This 3-hour workshop walks through the basics of planning, preparing and facilitating a workshop. We'll cover a variety of activities and techniques that help you work through content, achieve your ends, and manage the crowd.

Workshop is aimed at newcomers to workshop-running, and is intended for people who are finding themselves in facilitation scenarios and who are actively interested in progressing their skills

    Thank YOU all for your enthusiasm on a rainy Saturday morning. We are glad you were able to take something out of it. Jay and I are working on how best to facilitate and share more practical workshop activities, so stay tuned.

    In the mean time, go forth and make those workshops work for you!

    All the best!

    A small request - Is it possible to get electronic copies of the handouts given on Saturday? Sadly mine did not survive the journey home.

      Hey Christian, if you haven't received the electronic copies from Jay already, I'll have a chat with him and see if he's able to share them.

    Thanks for today. Really enjoyed it.

    Loved it - thanks again Jay and Ash.

    Some of my big take-aways from the day (in case they are useful to people) :

    * Losing control will happen
    - Decisions might not be reached, outcomes from activity not attained
    - Just roll with it, maybe cancel a follow-up activity
    - Decide how important it is for an outcome to be reached in this activity and react accordingly

    * Always have an ally / partner in crime
    - To help plan
    - To help run
    - Possibly even a third to take notes

    And the rest...

    Thanks guys

    • Eric S.

      Yeah, that was weird - there was an email last night saying there was.

    Sorry, I'll have to be away in Melbourne this day. So disappointed.

  • Jay R.

    As we said at the last meeting, PLEASE use the waiting list, these RSVP's are quite volatile and we got a handful of cancellations and no-shows even on the day of the last workshop.
