Preceding NLS6 is a full day of workshops on Saturday February 9th 2013, covering a wide array of topics, from leadership to research, from copyright to social media, from professional identity to design thinking.
With so many topics, how do you choose? Do yourself a favour and sit down to consider your options rather than leave it crazily until the last minute to make your decision.
Head to the program page of the website. Use the ‘Switch Schedule’ filter to switch from Symposium to Workshops view. There’s six streams of workshops. Click on a session title to find out more about each workshop’s content.
Making choices #1
First up, choose between:
- a full day option – now you have narrowed down to two choices; or
- two half day options – now you have narrowed to two workshops from a line-up of four (morning) and four (afternoon).
A full day gives you a whole day to explore a topic, bond with the other participants, get practical experience and immerse yourself in topic. By contrast, the half-day workshops give you a chance to try your hand at two completely different topics.
Now you’ve narrowed your choices, it should be easier to make a decision right?
Making choices #2
Reflect on why are you coming to NLS6. Sure, there will be plenty of reasons why you’re joining us, but focus on your core reason.
Are you focused on strengthening your professional identity? Are you coming to expand your technical skills? Are you exploring new ways of looking at social media?
Pick a topic that scares you. Pick a topic that stretches you. Pick a topic that affirms why you do what you.
If you could have any job in the world, which workshop topic(s) would help you achieve it?
We didn’t promise to make it easy to choose, because we did promise you that this symposium would Be Different. The workshops will all be awesome. We’ll be showcasing the workshops over the coming weeks, so if you really can’t decide right away, then make sure you stay tuned to find out more.
