This week we are talking all about Creation, not Consumption
Welcome to week 2 of the Creating Live Workshops mini series, and today we are talking about creation, not consumption.
Consumption is when you are participants are just sitting and absorbing information, they are consuming. They might be listening to you speak, looking at your power point, watching a video you made etc… but all of that is consumption.
Creation on the other hand, is when they are generating the content. This could be during activities, group discussions, projects, research tasks, them presenting parts of the course and much more.
Each of these items requires them to generate the content. You’ll find that people often know the answer to their own questions if they really think about it.
It is said that the split between creation and consumption should be 80/20.
That’s to say, they should be creating 80% of the time and consuming only 20% of the time.
From a live workshop point of view, as we said last week, you don’t need to create 8 hours worth of content for an 8 hour event. Realistically, you need about 1 1/2 hours worth of content, the rest should be activities, discussion, implementation, and you supporting their learning process.
So, I’m curious… are you familiar with the concept of creation vs consumption?
Now that you know about it, how could you implement it in your next event?
