Workshops

Trivium offers several kinds of workshops and moderation for debates. Through our experience and broad diversity of trainers, we can develop befitting courses. We also have multiple members with a lot of experience in moderating and judging debates.
Because we, as an association, do not have a commercial aim, we are able to keep our prices low.

Schools

Debating is getting increasingly popular in secondary schools: More and more schools have their own debating club, and since a couple of years, debating has become a compulsary element of the curriculum. Are you a coordinator of a debating club, and do you want to have a good preparation for a tournament? Do you want to prepare your students for debating in class? Or do you want to introduce your students to debating in a fun, casual and interactive way? Trivium is ready to help!
In our standard workshop “introduction to debating”, we learn the students to organise their arguments and how to rebuttle. Besides, we cover topic such as framing, structuring and presenting.
Because our workshops are designed on demand, we are able to specifically on your needs. We can develop a workshop for every grade: from a workshop for the older students with debating experience, to an interactive introduction to debating for the younger students.

Students

We are able to offer our fellow students workshops and support for debating. For instance, we can offer this for study associations, student organizations such as political youth organizations, NGOs, student associations, etc.
In nearly every study, elements of debating can be found. Sometimes as an actual debate, but debating is also an important skill when it comes to arguing in an essay or doing a presentation. Therefore, Trivium provides workshops in these skills. We also did several easily accesible workshops for students for whom debating is a part of the curriculum.
For student organizations, we offer custom-made workshops. For instance, we have given several policital youth organizations workshops to increase their debating skills. We can also organize, moderate and judge debates for you. We provide fun and interesting motions, we will moderate the debate in a way that everyone is satisfied, and we give feedback and advice for the speakers.
We would like to discuss with you wath we could offer. For student organizations, we can negotiate the rates. We could even offer our workshops for free, if we see promotional benefit or if you can offer a favour in return.

Organisations

Do you need a moderator for your debate on your event or activity? Or does your organisation need a workshop in debating, presenting or making an argument? Contact Trivium! Our moderators and trainers each have their own expertise. Together with you, we can discuss how you want to shape your workshop or debat. Over the last couple of years, we have given workshop for Radboud University, we moderated debates for several events, and we are often asked by political parties to train their members.
