Facilitating great workshops with Donna Spencer


  1 day


In this (educational) workshop, you will learn how to plan and facilitate a (problem-solving) workshop that achieves great outcomes and actively involves everyone in the room.

Learn how to:

  • Forming concrete goals for the session
  • Deciding on structure and methods
  • Running the workshop itself
  • Reading the room, managing people and making sure everyone is included
  • Neutral facilitation
  • Managing time and space
  • Helping people create - craft, drawing and storytelling

This will be a workshop within a workshop. It will be entirely activity-based, with learning embedded into activities and reinforced with theory and material to follow-up later. We'll focus primarily on skills for in-person workshops, but will also discuss how to modify methods for online workshops.

This workshop is offered alongside the in-person YOW! Perth 2022 conference.
