Technical Workshop Best Practices

From Federation of Earth Science Information Partners

The Visioneers are responding to comments on the technical workshops with a short list of recommended practices.

  1. Workshop description should be centered on an educational objective ("After the session, participants will be able to ...")
  2. Hands-on instruction, support an interactive session; encourage laptop use
  3. Actual, specific instructions (not just demo)
  4. Participants... not an audience
  5. Organizer should offer link to software to download before workshop
  6. NOT PPT centric!
