Making Effective Workshops Happen. Camp Administration Series.
Intended for trainers or workshop planners, the guide provides information and suggestions for planning and conducting an effective workshop. Although an awareness workshop on serving disabled campers is used to illustrate the material, the procedures apply to all types of workshops, ranging from awareness workshops to managerials. The guide will help trainers or workshop planners to: choose a title for the workshop that will encourage attendance; provide information on the types of content, activities, and resources that should be part of a workshop; make use of local resources in planning and conducting the workshop; choose audio-visual aides which will supplement workshop content; and determine whether participants' attitudes have changed as a result of the workshop. The first section provides information on: identifying audience needs; setting goals and objectives; organizing the program; identifying resources; identifying barriers (travel, transportation, financial, architectural, and attitudinal barriers); and evaluating the program. The final section provides information on determining the types of learning activities suited to the needs of the audience and to the time available for the workshop. Appended are copies of the Attitudes Toward Disabled Person Scale and answer sheet, a workshop evaluation form, and a sample agenda and budget for an awareness workshop. (NQA)
