The past two days has been intense, exciting, and really fun. I have been running seminars in conjunction with the City of Kamloops Parks and Recreation department. One course is called 'Scanning and Digital Imaging" and the other "Intro to Internet". I didn't quite know what to expect as it's the first time I have run seminars in this format. It's really worked out well overall. 2 three hour seminars a day is pretty intense. I had almost lost my voice by the end of the evening seminar this evening. I just try and keep it fun, casual, and very informative and work for the best.
I decided this week to start each seminar asking each participant if there were specific things that attracted them to attend. Then I made sure I covered those topics as a priority. That may sound simple, but in writing down everyone's answers on a piece of paper and keeping it very close throughout, I could keep zeroing in on areas of interest and concern.
95% of the evaluations 4 out of 5 and 5 out of 5. It's pretty amazing when you get an evaluation back and you see someone has rated you 100%.
Not satisfied though - I have to keep on getting better. Next time I do this, the goals needs to be 95% of evaluations 5 out of 5.
