Most beneficial aspect: The instructor for this workshop was great. It felt like everyone had a chance to speak and ask questions. The environment was super friendly, which I think was because of the instructor. And I felt like she had a clear agenda for what we were going to discuss, but she was still very open to people who had questions that veered away from that.
Postdoctoral - AS1 - NA
Most beneficial aspect: Learning about conferences in other disciplines.
