  Invitation to sign up for a course on collaborative workshops

I’m helping to run a course on delivering workshop
is going to be hosted on p2pu.org as part of the School of Open- I’ve
designed some badges and we are due to start sign up on the 22nd of
July. While I like to think that we have added our own special touch,
most materials have been gathered from existing sources. The one thing
they all have in common is that they are all published under open licences.

The main sources have their own excellent websites so if you want to go
straight to the source then check them out here;

  * Seeds for Change <http://www.seedsforchange.org.uk/>
  * Aspiration Tech <http://aspirationtech.org/>
  * Rhizome Collective <http://rhizomenetwork.wordpress.com/>

Would you like to be a part of this course? Maybe you already know a bit
about delivering workshops and would like to share your experiences?
Maybe you are new to workshops and facilitation? Perhaps you can join
this course with some of your colleagues as a way of learning together?

One of the reasons that I am helping to run this course is to use it as
a way of doing some professional development. I’ve spend some time
working with partners from Creative Commons and the P2PU.org to research
and pull together some of what we feel are the best introductory
materials and techniques on delivering collaborative and interactive

This course is a way of bringing existing materials to a new audience on
new platforms (p2pu.org and FLOSS Manuals). Also by remixing them into
an online course it allows people to share their experiences while they
work through the materials and suggestions for planning a workshop.

We are adding Open Badges <http://openbadges.org/> into the mix too. We
are keeping it simple. If you plan a workshop you can submit it for peer
review to get a badge. And if you deliver a workshop and take photos and
write up your learning, well that deserves a badge too.

Though online discussion via comments, and via live group chat sessions
we hope to build a community of people who will plan and then ideally
deliver a workshop with peer support from other course participants.

If you are new to delivering workshops then this is a great opportunity
to learn from a great group of trainers some of whom have some fantastic
experiences to share.

On the other hand, this course is a perfect chance for existing trainers
to experiment with this online learning tool and community. You can dip
a toe in the water while working with familiar subject matter.

To sign up visit the course home page
click on */Start Course/* on the left of the column. You will need to
sign up for p2pu.org.
