Designing Effective Workshops

Designing Effective Workshops, Teleclasses and Webinars

Increase your income teaching what you know.

Program Overview

A good training workshop design allows:

  • students to learn with ease
  • teachers to speak with skill, comfort and centeredness
  • both to build a trusting business relationship which can continue long after the class ends

For many years, I was the International Director of Education for a software company and creating new educational classes was what my team did, day in and day out.

I have studied the structure, process, and psychology of good adult educational design and am happy to share my knowledge with you and to help you create an outstanding class for your own students!

You Will Learn

  • the psychology of how adults learn

Karyn Greenstreet's 'Designing Effective Workshops' program was well worth my money and time. The class was jam-packed with the information that I needed to create a workshop that fit my target market's needs. By the end of the program, I had a completed an instructive, thought provoking, and fun workshop for new moms! My workshop has clear objectives, individual lesson plans, group and individual exercises, warm-ups and more. The best part of Karyn's program was her feedback: every week I got to show her my work on the message forum and she promptly replied with a helpful critique of my work. This program is a great investment for anyone who wants to improve or create a workshop or class!

For anyone considering developing an effective workshop, teleclass, or any type of training presentation, I highly recommend taking your Designing Effective Workshops program first!

I had been asked to design and deliver project management workshop for nonprofits recently. My challenge was taking such a broad subject and condensing it down into a four hour workshop. Not an easy task in such a short amount of time!

If it wasn't for your Designing Effective Workshops program, I can honestly say it would never have been able to pull this workshop off and get the high marks I received from my workshop participants. I can't wait to begin designing my next workshop!

Karyn, this is one of the best classes I have taken. Your material is extremely well organized and presented. I found the needs assessment very helpful and appreciated the resources that can simplify the process. Conducting an assessment is a great pre-marketing tool, as well as making sure the workshop is targeted to a need. I also benefited from the easy-to-use format for putting together a lesson plan.

Thanks for presenting a fantastic class. You shared all of the pieces required for creating a class or workshop, and you role-modeled by giving us such a valuable and well-designed class. I feel I now have the tools and greater confidence to complete the classes I've been wanting to offer to my network. Thanks also for being so available to support us during the class. It was great to have your personal input with our homework!

I can’t recommend the Designing Effective Workshops + Teleclasses class highly enough! I have a lot of ideas for teleclasses, but I could never seem to bring all the pieces together. As a result, I never did anything. Karyn’s class changed all that for me! I now have the ‘missing piece’ – a template for how to effectively hold a teleclass. This template is gold. Now I can confidently go forward with my ideas knowing that I’ll be presenting them in a way that is cohesive, fun, and most importantly provides the learning experience my clients are looking for. Thank you, Karyn!
