Here are some relevant questions from you and my answers:

1. Do you know which topics are already being covered?
1.1 TLU Navigation Game (creating a personal map of the university buildings)

2. Are these just presentations, or would we be expected to provide material for attendees to work on?
You and your team can decide what is the most suitable format for you. I personally prefer If you give them some practical tasks. You don’t need to provide materials (but you can).

3. How long should each workshop be?
Again this is up to you. The maximum duration is 120 minutes. Minimum lets say 30 minutes. If needed we can run the same workshop several times or we can provide them one after other.

4. What resources/materials would we have access to? Computer and projector?
The class is taking place in A303. We have 8 computers for students (e.g. one computer per group of students) and a projector. You can attach your laptop to it or you can use my computer. If you need to print something I can help.

5. Are we expected to use content/materials from projects in our DLG courses, or create something new?
I recommend you to use materials that exist already (from DLG or from the Internet) and not to spend time for creating new ones.

6. Approximately how many attendees would we have?
23 (One idea is to divide them between 4 groups. Alternative option is to run your mini-classes one after another).

7. What resources/materials would attendees have access to?
They can use the Internet. :) Well they have access to Slide Share presentations. I’m not planning to share iCampus with them.

7. Are you able to provide examples of mini-workshop presentations from previous events?

If you have additional questions don't hesitate to ask.

Sorry Martin, it's still blank. It works, but it just takes me to a post with a single comment from you. Nothing else is there.
