"It’s been more than a week since the Brighton workshop and I didn’t want more time to go by without thanking you all for what has been a fantastic learning experience. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days in Brighton, and I think this was due to the fact that it was the culmination of such a long process and of a wonderful exercise in collective knowledge production. I often attend conferences and work related workshops and I think GDN’s approach for the whole of the Doing Research project has been really unique and has allowed for a really enriching learning process."
