A few things to note:

  • The maximum number of participants for this workshop is 35 (instead of the usual 24 for our purely in-person workshops).
  • Participants need to complete part 1 in order to attend part 2.
  • Only participants who complete both parts will be credited as having completed the workshop.
  • The last day for participants to register for the workshop is Monday, September 28 since this is when the online component starts. But since this is our first time running it though, I can make some exceptions if we haven’t filled the 35 spots before September 28.
  • Participants who are registered will receive the information on how to access the online component a few days before part 1 starts.
  • Participants who have not completed part 1 will receive a reminder to do so mid-way through the online component
