Workshops

One-Off, Recurring, & Flagship Events

Workshops are interactive sessions led by Gates Scholars or professional facilitators selected by the Learning for Purpose team.

They are usually run as a 'half-day' session during a weekday evening or 'full-day' over a weekend day. Workshops may also be run as recurring sessions over several weeks.

 

In addition to programming throughout the term, LfP usually runs an annual flagship event: the Skill-a-Thon. This event changes each year, but generally represents a culmination of the academic year's events and takes place over one weekend.
