Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Presenting Multi-Hour Workshops

Creating Multi-Hour Presentations

In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Nick dissect the dreaded “multi-hour workshop presentation” and provide key tips, tricks, and strategies for your next large conference workshop presentation or school based professional development day.

How to Prepare for a Multi-Hour Workshop

How to conceptualize a multi-hour presentation vs a standard hour presentation

  • School workshops vs conference workshops
  • Audience expectations

Lecture vs Workshop

  • How much should you talk and how much should you engage?
  • Does Think/Pair/Share work?

Choosing what platform to focus on (Google/Apple/Microsoft)

  • How do you plan when you don’t know the platform?

Crafting the Perfect Intro

  • Hooking teachers at the onset
  • Show, tell, or let them do?
  • Let them know what to expect during this workshop

Handouts vs downloadable templates

  • Handouts are good if they are breaking something down
  • Digital resources are easier to maintain/don’t get lost/easy to come back to

How to create a memorable ending?

  • Something they can takeaway
  • Group brainstorming session of ideas
