Tips for effective workshops:

All workshops should:

  • have clearly articulated goals and objectives related to classroom / school implementation.
  • engage participants throughout its duration
Effective Workshops are participant-centered. When developing your workshop, consider the following components:
  • Interactivity – participants should be engaged and not passive.
  • Time for reflection during the workshop.
  • Time for each participant to develop an action plan. Make sure there are take-aways.
  • Collaborative work time among participants.
  • Provide sufficient time for questions and answers.
  • Request feedback from the participants.
