The details of our workshop schedule
For many years, we have offered this workshop over five days, beginning at noon on Day 1 and ending at noon on Day 5, although the workshop length is technically only four total working days. This allows many workshop participants to travel to and from the workshop on Days 1 and 5 without having to be away an additional day.
The workshop schedule presented below is a true four-day version that begins at 8 am on the morning of Day 1 and ends before dinner on Day 4, a schedule that is more suitable for a workshop where participants live nearby. If you are interested in the rationale behind our course design philosophy, you can find information in our Online Course Design Tutorial or in the information for professional developers.
Before beginning, you may wish to download the documents referred to in discussions in this section, including our PowerPoint slides (PowerPoint 1.2MB Mar16 10), the workshop assignment sheets (Acrobat (PDF) 125kB Dec22 05), a detailed workshop schedule for the summer 2005 workshop (Acrobat (PDF) 149kB Jan5 06), the format for final workshop posters (Acrobat (PDF) 19kB Jan5 06), the "daily road check" evaluation form (Acrobat (PDF) 61kB Jan4 06), and the workshop final evaluation form (Acrobat (PDF) 64kB Jan4 06).
In the workshop details below, we refer to "leaders" and "facilitators" separately. The workshop leaders are the people who have organized the workshop and are intimately familiar with the process and objectives. The leaders recruit facilitators to help with the workshop, guide small group discussions, and provide advice and tree-shaking. You can find advice on selecting facilitators here.
Remember also that the Online Course Design Tutorial contains expanded arguments for our course design process plus all of the examples that we use, most of which are not detailed in the PowerPoint slides. We have provided links to the relevant tutorial sections within the schedule details below.
