    Great question! The objectives of this workshop include “work” by participants as well as presentations, discussion, and surveys.

    Participants will have an opportunity to try out several applications interactively during the workshop. Work on classroom modules begins informally on Tuesday and open group work time for participants is scheduled for Wednesday.
