What do we mean by workshop?

By workshop we mean a group of people coming together for a specific amount of time and with a clear purpose. This group could be doing a number of things: making sense collectively, making decisions, learning, co-creating or simply getting to know each other - and most likely a combination of these! Online workshops come with a set of challenges but also with some perks. We will be addressing them in this course.

What others have said about this course

"I greatly appreciated all the knowledge and insights shared by the facilitators. They showed us a good number of valuable tips, methodologies and tools, which we could use immediately. Additionally, the workshops were very interactive, relaxed and fun. What I learned was very useful for my work. I hosted two online workshops and colleagues and clients congratulated me. I am very thankful!"

Brais Padin, Vector5

" Sessions that I was looking forward to every time. A learning-by-doing process that makes sense, engages and gives practical skills while challenging and broadening perspectives. Efficient and clear communication with Alícia and Manel who are always open for feedback and ready to re-adjust their strategies according to the learning needs of the group. The kind of space where one is asked about intentions before expectations."

Monica Tranchych, Mitost

" While we grew up in a time in which peer-to-peer paradigms had already become part of the way we organize the everyday, we keep forgetting that decentralization is as much a way to design infrastructures as it is an art, a cultural technique, and a way to build lasting cultures of collaboration. Alícia and Manel know all about it. We greatly appreciate their willingness to not only share methods and a wide array of resources, but to take the time to carefully engage us in a truly co-creative process of adapting these methods to better define our goals, structure collaborative engagement, and reach out to new audiences. Many thanks from the team at K8 - this will not be the last series of events we create in common."

Soenke Zehle, K8 Institute
