Over the last year, I noted down the times of every of our workgroup seminar. Well, not for every seminar but for 26. Our seminar is meant to be once a week. We talk about general things (instruments, conferences, publications, …) as well as individual projects (everyone in the group should give some information about the progress/problems/issues of his/her project). During the semester we also have a presentation from someone of the group (about 20 minutes).
Now, I did some statistics about it:
I wonder. Is 83 ± 35 min a lot of time for a workgroup seminar for about 10 people?
