Workshop Template

No matter where you are in the workshop creation process, we recommend downloading this workshop template to organize your thoughts. Use it to write down activity ideas, plan your time, and record all the materials you need.

Keep in mind that you don’t need to fill it all out at once; you can add to it throughout the process and watch your ideas become a fully-formed workshop!


McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
