WHILE IT IS extremely difficult to measure achievement or deficiencies of a teaching and learning workshop, important clues can be gleaned from feedback. Useful information is actually elicited during the sessions themselves via the level of activity of the participants, their reactions in specific sessions, their attitudes, and their comments. In order to provide the conference planning group with some measure of effectiveness of the sessions and the range of interests of teachers of dermatology, a questionnaire was sent out ten days after the conference soliciting opinions from each of the 145 participants. The results are tabulated below.
