How long do most of these workshops take to deliver, and how much out-of-class time is involved for faculty? For students?

Most workshops take (at most) one one-hour class session to deliver. The faculty member's investment of time can vary from two hours to ten hours, depending on how complex a project is, how much they want to be involved in coming up with project ideas for their classes, and how much time they want to spend evaluating students' work. Same with student involvement.
