Below are comments from our anonymous survey regarding the April CAMERA Workshop at the Florida Loves Israel Conference:
"As far as an overview it was perfect. Complex enough to target the suitable individuals and simple enough that it does not need extensive explanation."
"The lecture was great! I learned a lot"
"Lecture was detailed and informative, but not too complex"
"I wish we had more time in our session to learn more"
Some responses from a CAMERA workshop at Brooklyn College:
"I loved how interactive the workshop was. Too often, even workshops can feel like too much a lecture and not very engaging."
"Thank you so much for coming to our Hillel. I think that many students realized after this event that it is not as complicated as they thought to write an op ed in the Kingsman
or the Excelsiot
"I thought it was helpful that we were able to work on and critique our own letters." Dates
