2. THE STATEMENT OF THE OBJECTIVE
The facilitator should clearly state the Objective of the session. The Objective will be the same or similar to the Learning Objective.
Check with the participants to ensure that they all have the same expectations. If there are different expectations, be flexible in adapting the workshop. If the Needs Assessment has been carried out correctly it will not be necessary to make large changes. There are often small adaptations to a workshop, which is good because participants are made to feel that their concerns are important and are being listened to.

The activities should take up most of the time during a workshop.
