  • At the end of the lesson, you will be able to:

    • Describe the process of developing an educational workshop

    • Put the steps into action by creating a workshop outline


Step 1 the gate keeper

Step 1: The Gate Keeper

  • The Gatekeeper: A place to begin

    • A member of the group to whom you will present

    • Obtain a slew of information that will provide the foundation for workshop planning

      • Topic

      • Time you will present

      • To whom you are presenting

      • How many will attend

      • How long your talk should be

      • Where you will be presenting

      • Are you part of an event, or is your talk The Event

      • Any other beneficial facts to help you plan


Step 2 brainstorm

Step 2: Brainstorm

  • Brainstorm - Ask yourself a few questions

    • What does your audience want to hear?

    • What do you want the audiences to know or be able to do?

    • What are the major points of your presentation?

    • How will you illustrate those points?

    • How will you summarize your presentation?

    • What’s the link?

    • How will you motivate them?

    • Write down ideas as they come and create a “bank”


Step 3 the outline

Step 3: The Outline

  • Beginning/Introductions

    • How will I introduce myself? (if not being introduced by another)

    • Will you include an icebreaker? If so, what kind?

      • A joke

      • Audience participation


Step 3 the outline1

Step 3: The Outline

  • Share the purpose of the presentation

    • Revisit your brainstorming questions

    • Ask yourself the following questions and begin to build the framework of your presentation:

      • What does the audience want to hear?

      • What do you want the audience to know?


Step 3 the outline2

Step 3: The Outline

  • The Body of the presentation

    • It should develop naturally from the framework

    • How will you help the audience learn the information that you want them to know?

      • What the main points of my presentation?

      • How will I illustrate those points?

    • A 45 minute talk should have a maximum of 5 main points

      • Don’t overload your audience or provide too little information


Step 3 the outline3

Step 3: The Outline

  • Arrange the points in one of the following ways:

    • Timeline

      • Sequential order

    • Priority

      • Main points delivered in increasing importance

    • Problem/Solution

      • Present the problem, suggest a solution, give the benefits

    • Classification

      • Important items are the major points

    • Simple to complex

      • List ideas from simplest to most complex


Step 3 the outline4

Step 3: The Outline

  • Consider visual aids to illustrate your points and help the audience members understand

    • Posters, PowerPoints, movie clips, music, photos, games, activities, etc.

  • Wrap up your presentation

    • How will you summarize your presentation?

    • What’s the link between your presentation and their “real lives?”

    • How will you motivate them to do whatever it is you’re asking them to do?


Step 3 the outline5

Step 3: The Outline

  • The final two questions may be hardest to address, but are also the most important

    • Illustrating the link between the information and their real lives is important if you want:

      • To establish a genuine connection with the audience

      • Audience to retain information

    • If the audience can not relate to you the information, they will not act upon the information

  • Invite questions at the end of your talk

  • Thank the group for inviting you to present


Step 4 practice practice practice

Step 4:Practice, Practice, Practice

  • Spend time working on the delivery alone

  • Read through your notes and think about how you will tell your story

  • Make a plan for how you will enhance the message

    • Vary your voice

    • Use gestures

    • Change your body language

  • Audio or video tape your delivery and review

  • Do a “dress rehearsal” for family and friends

    • Have all of your teaching tools with you for this
