Workshop Plan Part 2
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review the Multigenerational Center Activity (Links to an external site.).
In your Final Project, imagine that your supervisor at the Multigenerational Center has requested a proposal for a Workshop to be presented, by you at the center. Your Workshop Plan will include a topic of your choice based on your field of study and the needs of your audience. You will use the Welcome to the Ashford University Multigenerational Center! interactive from Week 1 to understand your audience and to choose a topic for your workshop. Your supervisor has requested that you use a specific Summative Template download to ensure that all components are comprehensively addressed. Since this is a substantial project for a new employee, your supervisor (instructor) will review major components of your proposal before your final submission.
There are multiple parts to this assignment. You will work on components of this assignment in Weeks 3, 4 and 5 using the provided Summative Template. Please be sure to review the template completely, as well the due dates, to ensure that you are addressing your supervisors request in a timely manner. Parts of the assignment described below correspond to sections in the template. See a completed Summative Template with Flyer example download.

Using your background knowledge of your field of study, share two possible solutions for each roadblock.

You will include a complete list of all materials necessary to have a successful workshop.
