WORKSHOP LOGISTICS

Following are lists of the logistical components of each workshop that program leaders must manage.

All Workshops

  • Identify the date, time and place for the workshop.
  • Manage facilities for the workshop.
    • Space: Set up room in round tables for eight each.
    • Supply food and beverage.
    • Audiovisual: Projection system, microphone, and PC
    • Podium in front or onstage and tables and chairs
  • Manage workshop registration.
  • Produce a registration list to include in workshop packets.
  • Produce workshop materials packets.
  • Create name tags.

Workshop I: An Orientation to Course Redesign

  • Print workshop materials to include in packets
  • Divide participants into groups of eight each.
    • Establish a number and a letter for each table (Example: Eight tables of eight each numbered 1 – 8 and lettered A – H).
    • Divide participants into two sets of groups of eight. One set will be utilized in the morning workshop activity (groups 1 – 8), and one set will be utilized in the afternoon workshop activity (groups A - H), making sure that people from the same departments are not in the same groups. The goal is to distribute the participants so their discussions are not with their day-to-day colleagues.
    • Assign each participant a number and a letter. Put both on each one’s name tag.
    • Create stanchions for each table with the appropriate number and letter.
    • At registration, instruct participants to sit at the table that corresponds to their number.
    • At noon, project leaders should remix the groups by instructing participants to move to the table that corresponds to their letter.

 Workshop II: Developing the Redesign Proposal

  • Print workshop materials to include in packets and to distribute.
  • Divide participants into groups of eight each.
    • Establish a number and a letter for each table (Example: Eight tables of eight each numbered 1 – 8 and lettered A – H).
    • Divide participants into two sets of groups of eight. One set will be utilized in the morning workshop activity (groups 1 – 8), and one set will be utilized in the afternoon workshop activity (groups A - H), making sure that people from the same departments are not in the same groups. The goal is to distribute the participants so their discussions are not with their day-to-day colleagues.
    • Assign each participant a number and a letter. Put both on each one’s name tag.
    • Create stanchions for each table with the appropriate number and letter.
    • At registration, instruct participants to sit at the table that corresponds to their number.
    • At noon, project leaders should remix the group by instructing participants to move to the table that corresponds to their letter.
