AI Supported Workshop Design for Facilitators

8 Days


Cohort-based Course

Get the tools, prompts and practice you need to design workshops with AI & create learning experiences that your audience will love.

Course overview

How to use AI to design research-backed highly interactive workshops

Most people think creating a workshop is extremely labor intensive, but actually technology and AI provide an abundance of support for the instructional design process.

Stop laboring for weeks over your deck and notes, and start leveraging artificial intelligence to accelerate how you draft and finalize your learning programs and experiences.

The best way to show up fully present as a facilitator (and make your content stick) is to leverage more tools (especially tech) so that you can spend less time on creating your content and more time and attention engaging with your learners.

This course is for you if


You are a workshop facilitator who wants to have their workshop assets created in hours instead of weeks


You are Learning & Development leader who struggles to manage their regular workload while also being tasked to design a new training or pro


Are a professional coach who wants to learn a framework to translate your 1:1 programs into group learning experiences
