A workshop is a training experience available to conference participants upon payment of an additional fee. Workshops must provide skills and leave participants with enhanced knowledge, new information and take-aways. Additionally, workshops are a networking opportunity and should therefore be designed to include elements that facilitate this aspect.
Workshops take place on Tuesday and last either half a day (3.5 hours, including one break) or one full day (8 hours, including two breaks and lunch). Conference participants who have pre-registered at an additional fee can participate. One workshop leader is in charge of delivering the workshop and one to three speakers support the workshop leader and engage the audience – for half-day workshops, there is a maximum of two speakers.
Workshops must have clearly defined learning outcomes, interactive components, handouts and a well-defined structure. Workshop proposals are assessed by the Conference Programme Committee and Professional Development Committee based on the quality and relevance of the content, the proposed delivery, and their value within the context of the EAIE (eg diversity of subject matters, audience, Expert Community topics, conference theme, etc).
