7. What are the two classifications of attendees and why are they offered?
Attendees can participate at two different levels; full participation or audience participation. Attendees selecting full participation complete all the of preparatory materials, receive front of the room coaching during the workshop along with video recording, and take part in the post workshop conference call. Participation is limited to 12 full participant attendees per workshop.
Audience participation attendees attend the workshop as observers. They can participate in discussions and question & answer sessions and receive handout materials. Audience participants do not complete preparatory materials or receive front of the room coaching. Audience participants are limited to 30.
Some attendees choose audience participation because they do not feel they have enough experience and confidence as educators or speakers. They attend as audience participants to take a smaller step into the world of the educator to build their confidence. Most audience participation attendees return as full participants at a subsequent workshop.
