|Host A Workshop|
We make hosting a PROMPT workshop easy for our hosts. If you can’t find a workshop near you – we can come to you. You do not need to find all of the participants for a workshop – we will list it on our website for participants to register directly with us.
What do we need?
We need a quiet room for three consecutive days (9:00am to 4:30pm) that can comfortably accommodate a minimum of 14 people and a maximum of about 40. The room needs tables and chairs set in a classroom style arrangement. We also need an LCD projector and screen (or very large TV) with speakers/sound.
In areas where workshop participants will drive to the workshop, we need to ensure parking is available.
If you can provide all of the above without any fee to the Institute and we get at least 13 registrations, we allow you to send one person free to the workshop.
What do you need to do?
Once you have ensured all of room requirements are available, we need to you to send us all of the following details at least 120 days prior to the start of the workshop:
Please forward the information above to Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive your information, we will contact you to determine if we are able to staff the workshop.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much will the workshop cost for participants attending?
Our workshops generally cost about $700 to $1,000 US dollars.
The PROMPT Institute is non-profit organization, we try to keep our costs as low as possible to provide training. We do not profit from our educational programs.
Our maximum student to teacher ratio is 14 to 1. Many times our Instructors must travel great distances to teach our workshops which also requires them to have several travel days. Administrative coordination, manuals, instructor training, educational development and other expenses all add up and do not allow us to conduct workshops at a 14 to 1 ratio inexpensively.
Why do I only get one free spot for hosting?
When we utilize a local host, we are only saving our room rental from the above equation, which typically equates to about one free registration.
I have a group of 14-40 people, what discounts will I get?
If you have a large group and would like to conduct a workshop only including that group please include that information with your workshop details. If the group will all be paid on the same invoice, we will calculate a set price for your group. The price is based on our actual costs, which we have listed above.
How do I host a workshop in a language that is new to PROMPT?
The PROMPT Institute’s mission is to make PROMPT available to anyone who can benefit from it.
Our expansion into regions with languages that are new for PROMPT is difficult. PROMPT can not simply be translated as it requires a deeper understanding of the PROMPT concept and it’s unique application to a new language. We can not run a workshop with a translator - even if they are a Speech Language Pathologist.
