Starting in the Fall 2021 quarter, we are implementing weekly workshops in place of softblocks + a 3-hour C+F session. The main idea is that the CDSC workshop provides a weekly venue to present/share work about once per quarter. This would be similar to C&F, but spread over the quarter; in Fall 2021, we are trying this out in place of a C+F block.

Everyone is expected to attend the workshop sessions. Everyone is also expected to sign up to present/share work each quarter.

In the week you are presenting/sharing, you should circulate something for the group by EOD Wednesday before your Friday slot. Like in the C&F, you are welcome to workshop a wide range of things: planning documents, draft papers, manuscripts with reviews, grant applications, job market materials, practice talks, brainstorming potential projects, etc.
