I can submit a patch later today. The reason: your first paragraph is
all background, and ends with a rhetorical question. You want your
reader to know, in the first sentence or two, that you are advertising
a workshop for faculty. The details of why (and why they want to be
part of it) can then follow.

Your second paragraph, with a slightly modified first sentence, gets
right into the point of the email quickly. That might serve as a
better starting point. Patch forthcoming...
