Organizers takeaways:

  • we really enjoyed the workshop and had a lot of fun organizing it
  • organizing a workshop is a lot of fun and you can learn a lot from it
  • organizing a workshop (across institutions) is a great networking possibility
  • organizing a workshop requires some capacities in the preparation phase and takes a lot of capacities during the workshop days (plan to rest afterwards)
  • the important information can be communicated on different channels & multiple times (its quite a challenge to reach everyone;)
  • for time management reasons, it pays off to spent time to conceptualize the Agenda (& to gather people before the workshops with a bell;)
  • Format of Lightning Talks could be improved

Thanks again for making berlin-2020 a great workshop:)
Sarah, Anselm, Jens
