This is a very interesting topic.

I've been teaching philosophy workshops on the side and they have been relatively successful. All I did was create a meetup group and find a venue that'd be willing to host. Surprisingly, there are always at least a few people who show up. I've mainly covered topics that you'd traditionally see in an ethics and political philosophy course, but recently I've been thinking of covering current events and linking them up with philosophy. So the next workshop I'm going to host is going to cover the killing of Cecil the lion and why we think killing a lion is bad.

I'm hoping that this new tactic will be successful in drawing more interest to philosophy.
