Saitama JALT:

What makes a good workshop?

Date: Sunday, October 19th, 2008 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Phil Brown and Colin Skeats

This hands-on, interactive workshop will encourage participants to explore and discover the qualities of successful workshops. We will aim to demonstrate how to create a successful workshop and provide participants with both guiding principles and a practical framework. There will be opportunities for everyone to apply this knowledge and practice relevant skills in order to better design and facilitate their own workshops, presentations and/or classes. Audience members will also be given time to develop their own workshop ideas and seek feedback and advice, as well as contribute to the process of grassroots teacher development. Please think about and bring any ideas you would like to develop into your own workshop.
