I think this page should be disambigated. There should be separate pages with sources if possible. I might work on trying to get one made later today or tomorrow. If someone else would like to do it, go ahead and start it :). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tinkleheimer (talkcontribs) 18:22, 4 January 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

elaborate more on WorkshopEdit

You could elaborate more on Workshop (definition ) related to gathering and traing by listing agenda item for typical events. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:02, 18 May 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Workshop toolsEdit

Perhaps a article called Workshop tools can be made giving an overview of essential tools for each type of workshop (eg woodworking workshop, boat repair workshop, vehicle repair workshop, ...). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:03, 4 July 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Backshop redirectEdit

Would someone please create a redirect page from Backshop to this page? (talk) 12:21, 29 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

educational workshopsEdit

I'm pretty sure I didn't do it right when I added the other definition of workshops. It would be great if somebody could make it conform to the standards. (talk) 00:11, 20 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I haven't checked carefully yet, but most of the information about educational workshops that was recently added belongs on the disambiguation page, which is linked in the original hatnote. There seems to be enough material to support a workshop (education) or workshop (event) page on its own, however. I'm going to move most/all of the content to the relevant disambiguation page.

I'm really new to wikipedia and trying to understand the rules, but it's pretty tough to wrap my head around the organizational format of the articles. It seems like when a google search is performed that this topic is pretty evenly split between the educational kind of workshop and the garage/shop kind of workshop. The disambiguation hatnote doesn't seem to draw enough attention that there is a two very different meanings that are equally common. This seems like a case where the plural "workshops" could have it's own page with a different meaning than the singular "workshop"...

Deleted text on "information era" workshopEdit

The hatnote, which has been at the top of this article for years, says the article is about mechanical engineering. Any editor is welcome to create additional articles about other kinds of workshops; a few such articles have already been created. See Workshop (disambiguation). The following text was removed, as it was off-topic. Someone may choose to use this text in another article.

During the "information era", a workshop describes an office or conference room meeting intended to create or generate plans, analysis, or design to support organizational efforts. Some people would differentiate a meeting from a workshop by suggesting that a meeting may contain an array of topics not dependent on each other in the sequence listed. For example, in a traditional "board of directors meeting", the treasurer's report appears early but it could be moved to one of the last items on the agenda without affecting other business of the meeting. Frequently workshops are focused on creating or delivering something (e.g., process improvement) and the sequence or order of the agenda items is critical to the development of the meeting output, frequently called a "deliverable".
