I appreciated the thoughtful comments from Karen Cook, Liz Constable, and Rachael Sullivan from my group. Reading people’s comments about the number of people engaged in their groups and noting the low number of people who did blog introductions, I wonder if some sort of additional steps in the workshop process would help. Groups could be formed after people did introductions and/or people could be put into groups after they commented on introductory blog posts and submitted their texts. It might also make sense for people who participated in previous years to be placed in groups with other people who contributed. Perhaps individuals who did not respond to group emails or engage in the process could contribute before being placed in groups in subsequent years.
