Welcome to the Workshop!

Speaker Notes You can use these slides as a way to introduce your workshop.

This first slide has links to each section to easily pick and choose which parts you want to use and in which order.

Each slide in this deck has a link back to this starting slide (at the bottom).


practical

Practical Info

.footnote[back to start]

Speaker Notes Discuss any practicalities now, for example


introductions

Introduce yourself

.left-column70[

.right-column30[ .image-90[cartoon with human shaped figures in multiple colours with speech bubbles saying hello over each of them] ]

.footnote[back to start]

Speaker Notes Go around the room and have everybody introduce themself briefly.

This is a good opportunity to get a better sense of the background of your audience.

These questions are just a guide


stickies

Sticky Notes

.left-column70[

  1. Status indicators
    • sticky-note Green: Used to indicate your progress
    • sticky-note Pink: Put on your screen if you need help
  2. End-of-day feedback
    • sticky-note Green: what did you like?
    • sticky-note Pink: what could we improve tomorrow / next time?
    • Leave them on the whiteboard at the end of the day ]

.right-column30[ .image-75[stack of sticky notes in pink, yellow, green, orange, and blue.]

.footnote[*your sticky notes may be different colours back to start]

Speaker Notes Get two different coloured sticky notes, and give one of each to each of the participants

Pink/red/orange: Have learners put this on their screen if they get stuck and would like a helper to come over. This will save them having to keep their hand raised if all helpers are busy.

Green/Yellow: You might give an assignment (“do this section on your own”, “try to answer this question box with your neighbour”) and want to continue centrally afterwards. By asking participants to put up the sticky when they are done, you will have a sense of when most of your learners are ready to continue.

Request to instructors:
