Both workshops went very well. An hour-and-a-half can really fly-by quickly. I burned many links to pdf's, listing services, Geocacher-U, sample cache types, travel bugs, etc to a CD for each participant. I also included a pdf of the PowerPoint presentation so they could look at it at their leisure.
For each workshop, I had selected five caches (COG, It's Chilly in Mole Hill, Between Heaven and Hell, Fountain of Gratitude, and Sunset View). I figured that if we could successfully find three during each workshop, that would be good (and we did!).
Most left really pumped about the possibilities of using GPS for building teamwork, orienteering skills, etc. It looks like there might be a return trip next year, except with a timed orienteering team challenge of some type.
Both workshops appeared to be well received, but I'll have to see the evaluation forms and feedback. The other big bonus was a room at the Sheraton Wall Centre overnight (it was rather nice!).
Most of the educators there think "outside the box" concerning ways to present curriculum in a new way to keep their students engaged (they teach either at First Nations programs, adult basic ed, distance education, students who are not in the mainstream education program).
...and hey, there were even some there who were already geocachers. Many, many thanks to Half-Canadian for providing a source for many GPSrs for the participants!
