Use this series of questions to help you start thinking about your workshop. It can be useful to write out your responses so you can refer to them later, and/or to discuss your responses with colleagues or a co-facilitator. The prompts below are provided as a Mural, which you can save to your own account and interactively engage with. Learn more about creating and account and using Mural.
