“How can I tell if this class I’m considering will be a success or a failure before I run it?”
“I have a great idea for a class!” is a phrase you’re probably all too familiar with. It might be initiated by anyone —a student, teacher, or a community or board member. Sometimes you know it will be a hit but other times you may simply not know if the suggestion is worth pursuing.
Launching With Confidence
“Should I add this class?” How can you launch a new class with confidence, knowing that you’ve done your best to ensure that it’s what your learning community wants? How do you show your director or board that it will have a positive outcome for your program?
Fortunately, there are many ways to explore how successful a class will be so you can feel like your decision to add —or not add— is a good one.
