Hi Anon!

I study biochemistry at university and in my experience workshops are typically smaller groups than a lecture and more interactive (you can raise your hand and ask a question etc). Most frequently my workshops were used to teach up a new technique like data handling, bioinformatics, academic writing, or maths (like plotting graphs or equations) relevant to an experiment or piece of coursework. Some of the techniques I learnt came up in my exams, so I'd recommend paying attention and making notes.

Thanks! That’s makes more sense now.
