As staff development moves from the district office to the school building, more teachers and administrators are being asked to lead workshops. Yet most educators have little or no training in adult learning.

In this practical guide, best-selling author and acclaimed presenter Hal Portner leads teachers through the step-by-step process of designing and presenting a successful workshop. Packed with proven strategies and ready-to-use worksheets, this insightful book provides information on learning style preferences, offers guidance to selecting and introducing activities appropriate to those styles, and touches on many of the unsettling issues a first-time presenter may face.

Features of the book include:

  • A workshop design planning form
  • Tips for overcoming stage fright and dealing with difficult participants
  • Ready-to-use workshop activities
  • Sample evaluation forms
  • Self-assessment worksheets for every stage in the process

Teachers and other educators who are presenting a workshop for the first time will find this an essential resource, while staff developers, trainers, and other seasoned consultants will value this book as a refresher or as a source for new ideas.
