Designing a Workshop

By Ashraf Al Shafaki


Aim for activities, they are the heart of a successful workshop much as a lion aims for the neck of a deer it is targeting to hunt. The deer is the target. Once the neck is successfully attacked, the rest of the body becomes all within easy reach. Once activities of a workshop are designed, the rest of the workshop can be easily created around them.


Workshop content as a tree. Stem, like a spinal chord, is the backbone of the course and represents the crucial information upon which the course is based. The branches are sub-information branching from the core info of the stem. The fruits are the objectives achieved. The roots are the foundation from which the stems base their info such as root knowledge not directly related to the core of the course. The flowers are the artifacts and project. The leaves are the activities by which trainees acquire knowledge.
