In response to the 2020 coronavirus lockdown, I have developed online workshops for:
To date (Sept. 2020) I have led five of these.
Read some of the feedback.

How an online workshop can work
Each workshop is conducted live and is tailor-made to suit your requirements.
In the “main room”, participants contribute to the discussion via camera and microphone.
In “breakout rooms”, they work with a partner or in a small group.
So far I have used BigBlueButton and Zoom, and can adapt to other platforms. The number of participants is limited only by the number of breakout rooms the platform provides (BigBlueButton is currently 8, Zoom is currently 50).
Get in touch and we can discuss your needs.
Several participants have asked about a workshop focusing exclusively on methodology (i.e. with no time spent on participants’ storytelling skills).
I would be very happy to lead one. Age-ranges from upper primary (approx. 8-year-olds) to adults. Yes, storytelling covers virtually everyone!
The work will reflect my own 30-odd years teaching in a German secondary school. Read more about that here.
If you would like to join this or another workshop, or have me lead a tailor-made workshop for a group of teachers (min. 4 participants) or an institution, get in touch and we can discuss your needs.
