A tutorial is a challenging educational setting, both for those learning and those instructing. Time is severely limited, and there is inevitably far more material on the subject than can possibly be taught in the time available. Unavoidably, compromises have to be made: do you make it deep and narrow, where you learn a subset of the material in great detail, or broad and shallow, where you get an overview of the whole, with less detail? Should it be a teaser to tempt attendees to later self-study, or a starter, so that attendees have at least a working knowledge of some of the material?

And then there is the method of presentation: should it be lecture style, permitting coverage of more of the material, or hands-on, allowing attendees more direct acquaintance with the material, while reducing the coverage?
