Clearly indicate "why" this workshop will be valuable for the participant's development. It should also include instructional modalities used for the workshop, e.g., hands-on activity, guided tutorial, leader demonstration, etc.
The Target Audience should include recommended participant background, e.g., no experience necessary, introductory, or intermediate background, etc.
Specify in the Equipment/Set Up section any required technology or tools that participants will need such as required devices, operating systems, and any software or documents that must be downloaded, etc.
If you need unique support and setup, contact the Workshop Chair. However, we can often only support presenters with a presentation screen, a projector and wireless Internet. And, there may be limited bandwidth to support large downloads during a workshop session, so it is recommended that the presenter(s) prepare a number of USB flash drives with installation files, directions, sample data, important documents, etc. that can be shared at the beginning of the workshop
