A workshop is a meeting or free-standing event for students to engage in intensive and extensive discussion and activity regarding a particular subject or project.
More simply said, a workshop is a short session to highlight the key points of a topic.
Workshops are the perfect opportunity for students with a tight schedule. Instead of a class that spans over the course of several weeks, a workshop condenses a topic into one or two sessions. This is great for students who would not be able to commit to a set class every week. Workshops are also great for students who are not sure if they want to commit to a whole semester learning about a topic. As workshops are generally a much shorter overview, it is perfect for students to get their feet wet with the subject matter before committing to a whole class.
