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

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

practical

.left-column70[

• Who are you?
• Where are you from?

• What experience do you have with the topics of this workshop? ]

.right-column30[ .image-90[] ]

.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[]

.image-75[] ]

 .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:

• Collect all sticky notes and add them to this GitHub issue after the workshop to share the feedback and ideas for improvements with the GTN community.
• Add any feedback received from yourself, other instructors, and helpers here as well
• Example feedback posts from other instructors: here and here
