Why bother with the additional time and cost of attending workshops before the conference begins?
Editors who attended workshops at the last conference have come up with a number of arguments to answer this question:
- Workshops offer "a great opportunity to delve into a topic in greater depth and learn from an expert".
- "It's great to draw on the knowledge of the trainer, but I'm continually surprised by how much I learn from the other people in the room."
- The workshops are very 'hands on'.
- The workshops encourage networking and social interaction.
