The BSSSE will accept 40 participants who work in 4 groups of parallel webtorials. Webtorials are a strictly interactive format where a small group works with a faculty member. Active participation is expected and encouraged by the tutors. Fluency in English is a precondition. Webtorials are not recorded for later use.
