The era of the physical classroom might not be passing but it has certainly been augmented by online teaching.
Neither student nor instructor need travel to take advantage of learning or passing along information. Everything can be done from the comfort of a home or office.
There are steps to take in planning, running, presenting, and even advertising an online workshop, particularly when the topic is more of interest to specific and possibly small audiences.
The focus here is on Online Workshops for Writers, for Small Business Entrepreneurs, and for people engaged in Crafts of all types.
Topics covered are:
The Basic Workshop
Figuring Out What You Can Share: Writers
Figuring Out What You Can Share: Business Entrepreneurs
Figuring Out What You Can Share: Crafters
Responsibilities and Expectations
Deciding On A Topic
Deciding What To Do and When To Do It
Expanding Your Repertoire
Becoming An Expert In Something
Places for Online Workshops
Building Your Own Classroom
Promoting Your Workshop
Becoming A Small Business
No previous teaching experience is needed to expand your audience or business through presenting online workshops!
Beth Daniels' introduction to online teaching came as an instructor at the college level, but as a published novelist she soon moved on to focusing on people interested in writing fiction. Because some of her workshops have covered the business aspects of being a freelance writer, she saw that other types of small business owners would be a viable market, and people engaged in making and selling crafts could also find students interested in learning how to create different projects.
In CREATING ONLINE WORKSHOPS FOR WRITERS, SMALL BUSINESS AND CRAFTERS, she has laid out the basics then moved on to supplying ideas on how a workshop presenter can expand their repertoire online.
