A few points about the workshops:

* anyone can apply for one workshop only or all 5
* people attenind all 5 can also complete assignemnets to obtain accreditation from UTS (details pending)
* there will probably be at least 2 facilitators atveach workshop, usually a combination of the academic (UTS) & the practical (Outreach)
* workshops will run all day, probably from 9.30 - 4.30
* these workshops will be held in Sydney, either at UTS or out west
* we plan to have about 20 participants at each workshop.
