How to Create a Workbook for a Seminar


Because a seminar is generally a place to learn things, a workbook is often an essential tool used in learning. A seminar can exist in real time, or can even be online, and a workbook can be printed material or can be published on the Internet for seminar-goers to access. No matter what type of seminar you are running, a workbook can be a valuable tool.

  • Create a timeline or outline for your seminar. This should include all of the points you are going to cover, or the points that the other speakers or presenters will cover. Depending on how long your seminar is, the outline may encompass a few hours' or a few day's worth of information.

  • Break your outline into doable pieces, or chapters. If your seminar is one that has many different speakers or presenters, the logical chapter breakdown would be one for each presenter. If you are conducting the entire seminar, break your outline into segments of an hour or less of talking.

  • Assign each segment or chapter a heading and a name. Then write a short introduction about each one.

  • Add information under each heading for each chapter or segment. Depending on the type of seminar you are having, this may be a brief outline of what the chapter will cover. It may contain additional information not included in the chapter, or it may contain room for notes. Some seminar chapters might also have games or group activities to be completed in the workbook.

  • Put your workbook pages together in chronological order, so that the participants in your seminar may follow along with the book while the seminar is going on. Number the pages. Create a table of contents that lists each chapter heading and what page each starts on. Pass one out to each participant. If this is an online seminar, have the workbook available for download at the seminar site.
