The best workshops are the ones that go way off tangent. I just came off doing a workshop about Podcasting and we never even got to how to produce a Podcast. We quickly discovered that there was no need for the instructor to produce a podcast. Why? Step #2 of my workshop, Research. Find out what is out there. If it exists and is up to date, why reproduce? In this case, it was a series on Psychology that was on Annenburg Leaner. The rest of the workshop was spent showing how to embed the podcasts into the learning management system, in this case, Etudes.
