Does the idea of training 10, 20, 30 people on the latest technology make your palms sweat and heart race?
In libraries, we train users everyday on a myriad of technologies - but training a group of people on a technology is greatly different than the one-one-one assistance we typically provide at the library. The logistics, audience and our own presentation skills can make or break any workshop.
During this course, we will explore:
Creating a logistics pre-training checklist to help ensure you and the location are ready to go
Writing course descriptions, titles and agendas to help set up realistic expectations from attendees
Managing the unexpected - from tech issues to problem participants
Developing basic presentation skills and techniques for successful public speaking
