The SSI is running The Carpentries Instructor Training online over four mornings from 15-18 June 2021.
Instructor Training is an intensive (normally two-day) workshop that explains evidence-based approaches to effective teaching computational and data skills to novices. It is also part of official training for people who wish to become Software Carpentry, Library Carpentry, and Data Carpentry Instructors.
- Teaches how to create a positive environment for learners at workshops and classes and motivate your learners.
- Provides opportunities to practise and build your own teaching skills.
- Prepares you to use these teaching skills in Carpentry workshops (but are also useful across any teaching you may do).
- Helps you become an integrated member of the Carpentries community.
It is strongly advised that the attendees have some previous exposure to Carpentry workshops, either as a student, helper, observer or co-instructor - to help set the things we will teach at the workshop in the right context.
The Workshop website contains more details about the workshop and schedule. To apply for a place at the workshop - please contact Aleksandra Nenadic (firstname.lastname@example.org). Priority will be given to participants from UK institutions that do not have a partnership with The Carpentries, i.e. people who cannot get onto Instructor Training as part of their institutional membership.
