Comment from a participant

"The course was really high quality.  There was a good balance of theory, illustrative roleplaying, solo work and final presentations with feedback.  I learned a new framework for organizing talks, and got reinforcement for some skills and tricks, and learned about some new ones. The amount of time spent on the practical part was perfect.  I wouldn't have wanted a shorter day - it was very good to have the solo work session, then some roleplaying exercises before our actual final presentations to make us feel comfortable and get us ready for the "real thing".  I was very happy with the pedagogy."
